The Lucet

The Lucet


The Lucet is a tool from ancient Vikiing times; they were used to make ropes, cords and cables used in every day life on the farm and onboard their ships. A very simple tool, it forms a square braid, making it much stronger than a single piece of rope. It was also used to make decortive trim on their clothing and belts and lashes for their outfits.

This lost art is making a comeback as folks realize what a useful tool it is, plus easy to learn and use. Just about any yarn, cord, roving, or thin rope can be used. A great project for any age or ability plus it's portable--a project you can take anywhere!

These are handmade wooden Lucets we designed ourselves to give you the perfect size and grip, and have made by a local woodsmith. Each one features a Celtic Knot on the handle--fond memories of when I learned to use the Lucet in a tiny village in Ireland.

  • a bit about Shipping...

    It's an expense nobody likes to pay. And I won't be a hypocrite and raise prices on merch and say "Free Shipping!", because it's not. I'd gladly show up at your front door and hand you your order but that's not practical. It's a necessary expense, and we need to charge it. We are always looking for new ways to save on shipping, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, if the Shipping Rates we must charge are significantly higher than what the actual shipping cost, we're going to make it up to you with free items in your order. It's the least we can do...
