Gluckskafer Wooden Lucet Braiding Fork for Viking Cords and Medieval Rope Making
Fun in Kindergarten and Class 1 as well as being the perfect craft tool for the Class 4 Steiner Curriculum when the Vikings are studied.
A braiding fork or knitting fork also called a lucet is used for making cords. The tool and technique date from the Middle Ages and were used by the Vikings for making rope.
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 elastic square cord that does not fully unravel when a thread snaps.
There is no limit to the length so you can have lots of fun making very long strong cords.
