The lucet is a tool used for making a strong, square cord and has many uses, but primarily for clothing. It is believed to have been used by the Vikings and definitely in the Medieval period. We make our lucets from poplar, cherry or mahogany. This is a fun tool to use for making necklaces, bracelets, hair ties, purse straps or long cords, to name a few things. Easy for all ages to learn on and comes with instructions.
