A lucet is a tool for making braided cord. There is evidently controversy over whether certain bone artifacts from the Viking era, such as those excavated from the Coppergate dig at York [Arthur MacGregor, “Anglo-Scandinavian Finds from Lloyds Bank”, The Archaeology of York vol.17, 1982], were actually used as lucets in period. Nonetheless, on the basis of those finds, the “bone lucet” (so blazoned to distinguish it from more modern forms) has been registered once in Society armory. The bone lucet is roughly rectangular, with two prongs at one end. It is defined in the following armory.
