Bullwhip Falls…

Bullwhip Falls…

Lately I’ve been experimenting with how I make my bullwhip falls. A lot of people have commented to me when they’ve seen pictures of me making falls that they were surprised at how much goes into making a fall.

At it’s most basic level a fall is a piece of tapered leather. However after talking to David Morgan and Joe Strain about falls I’ve realized that there is much more to a bullwhip fall.

One of my experiments turned out a nice fall.  What I did was cut the fall, then pared off the corners.  Then I oiled it and rounded it.  After than I have it a coat of braiding soap and rounded it again.  It’s made a nice round and smooth fall.  Now I’ll have to see how it holds up.
