A small Lucet

From Wikipedia-A Lucet is a tool used in cordmaking or braiding which is believed to date back to the Viking and Medieval periods, when it was utilized to create cords that were used on clothing.

This is a lucet I made from a fork that shall fit into an Altoids tin. My goal is to make other such tool that will fit into an Altoids tin and see how many I can fit in one tin. It is things to do during Court. The other goal is to lighten my basket load. I tend to carry a large number of things with me to keep busy and I never know what I will be in the mood to make. Today most lucets are made of wood in period they were mostly bone.

  1. Did you need any kind of forge to heat the metal or did you just use tools?
