Filges Braiding Fork/Lucet


A braiding fork or knitting fork, also called lucet, is used for making cords, a technique that probably dates from the Middle Ages and introduced by the Vikings. In contrast to cords that are made with, for example, a braid star, these cords consist of a series of loops that could be considered "knotted". This creates a very sturdy, square cord, which is very elastic and will not fully unravel when a thread snaps. There is no limit to the length, so you can make very long and strong cords. 

The wood comes from locally owned forestry in Estonia. length: 6.29 inches (16 cm), oiled.
