A braiding fork or knitting fork, also called a lucet, is used for making cords, a technique that probably dates from the Middle Ages and was 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: 16 cm, oiled. Includes a manual.
