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 are knotted, so to say. This creates a very sturdy, square cord, which is very elastic and willl not fully unravel when a thread snaps. Also there is no limit to the length of the wires, so you can make very long and strong cords.

The wood comes from locally owned forestry in Estonia.
