Lucets have been around for centuries. These happen to be my design take on them. I like to think that I have a really good design, and that they are comfortable to use, with or without the pick tool. (I prefer less associated tools, = less things I can loose.) It also makes them more ‘kid friendly’ I think.

When using a lucet as a strong cord making tool, you pull all loops into the cord snugly, making a cord or rope with little or no ‘give’ to it. Therefore, the tool needs only to be big enough to handle the fiber you are using, and it’s nice to have it be comfortable in your grip.

The Double Lucet has also been around for a really long time, though I am not sure how long. Originally, I believe that it was intended to be used as the original lucets intertwined, thereby producing a larger, stronger cord, and more decorative, since you might well use two or more colors more easily while interweaving them.

I, and a lot of others, on the other hand, really like using them like spool knitters, to make I -Cords. What they produce in this method, is actually knitted hollow cord, but it is the easiest, and fastest hand method I have ever used.

I understand the desire to have a double to take apart, but there are certain risks involved, causing them to be rather fragile at times.

Changes in humidity, temperature, and types of fiber being used, etc. all factor in, to make it rather fragile. So in lieu of taking them apart I offer a deal called the Cousins.

You get a single and a double of the same size, at a reduced price for the pair. Up side to this is, you can have two different projects going at the same time!

I list these sets, because at times they are a combination of tools that people would like bundled. I am still rebuilding my site pages, so if something isn’t quite clear, let me know, I will be glad to explain better if I can.

I call 4 prongs girls, and 2 prongs boys, Seems quite Quaint that way. Steps, are Small, Intermediate, and Extra Larges. Non-steps are the original choices, and they are Medium, Large, and Jumbo. The pictures don’t show all the choices, but Gals and Guys are all of that configuration (I can see where someone may want the Gals, because as french knitters they each do a different size. I am not sure exactly why people want the Guys, but they do, maybe they are collectors or something?)). The Family reunion, are one each, of all of them. (I guess some people like every option available.)

For the re-enactors, I am listing the lucets with no handles. Some people have expressed their desire to have lucets handle-free. So for what ever reason you have for these, here they are. I don’t make near as many of them, as the others so if you want a lot of them you may have to wait a little while for me to make some more for you. They are sized like the handled ones, by the width of the prongs.
