My bruised rib is feeling a bit better, but rolling the pair of four foot whips was very painful. I didn’t want them to sit almost finished while I started a new project. I also shellac’d a signal whip that I had forgotten to shellac a while ago.
Here’s the signal whip:
This signal whip has a shot loaded belly and has a nice weight to it. It measures approx. 42 inches from the butt to the end of the braiding and has a 16 plait “whiskey” colored kangaroo overlay.
4 Foot Matched Pair of Bullwhips
This pair of 4 foot 12 plait bullwhips are made from Saddle Tan and Whiskey colored kangaroo. They are made with 9 strands of one color and 3 of the other color.
I also split down every strand so they are the same thickness. Here are pictures of the two whips individually.

I’ve given all of these bullwhips a few throws in my living room and the crack well. I can’t take them outside because there’s stilll about 4 inches of snow and it’s raining!
