Lucet - Al Snipes

These unique tools are made by Al Snipes. 

This simple tool was used by Vikings, medieval and Renaissance Europeans, tall-boat sailors and proper Victorian ladies to make firm, square braids. Braids are handy for lashing, tying and embellishing and were used throughout the Western world until the industrial revolution replaced it with cheap, machine-made substitutes.
