I recently had a stock whip come in for a repair. The keeper on the lash had broken and it needed a new one. I forgot to take a picture of it broken, but here’s the repaired lash:
If you’ve got a whip that needs a repair, let me know and we can chat about it.
I finished the 8 foot bullwhip!
This whip has two plaited bellies and two bolsters. the overlay is 12 plait tannery dyed kangaroo. The handle is lead loaded and 10 inches long.
I just listed this whip for sale on the IN STOCK whips page.
Yesterday I put the knots on the 8 foot 12 plait bullwhip I’m working on.
The next step for this whip, is some rolling and shellac. Once that’s done it will be ready to sell!
I’ve got all of the plaiting finished on the 12 plait bullwhip I’m working on.
This whip has a 10 inch handle, a 4 plait wrist loop and a redhide fall. I’ll list it on my IN STOCK whips page once it’s finished.
I just had a whip come in for an adjustment. I think it was originally a signal whip, I didn’t make it, so I’m not 100% positive.
Based on how the loose ends looked, it appears there was a cracker on the end previously. The new owner wanted at slapper put on. Here’s the finished whip:
I thinned down the slapper;s end and it runs several inches into the point of the whip. That should hold it securely. then I put a fall hitch to secure the strands at the point of the whip.
If you’ve got a whip that needs a repair or adjustment, feel free to contact me to chat about it!
This has been shipped back to it’s owner!
Currently I’m making an 8 foot 12 plait bullwhip. The overlay is 12 plait in tannery dyed whiskey colored kangaroo. Here’s the overlay after I did the strand prep:
Later today I’ll start plaiting the overlay. I’m making this bullwhip for fun and when it’s done it will be listed on my IN STOCK whips page.
It’s been a while since I’ve had whips available on my IN STOCK whips page. I just listed two bullwhips and a riding crop.

On top of those I put the first bolster:
Then I put a second full length bolster on top of that:
Next up was cutting out the two overlays in 12 plait veg tanned, drum stuffed kangaroo:
After the overlay was plaited, I added the knots:

These are now on their way to their new owner!
People ask me all the time if I can put a new cracker on a signal whip and I can. Here’s one with a new cracker that I recently put on it:
