I’ve started work on the overlay of a 10 foot 12 plait kangaroo bullwhip. This bullwhips will be made from black kangaroo. I’ve got about 2 feet of the whip braided. Here’s a picture of about 2/3 of the finished handle:
I also got my shipment of veg tanned goat hide in. I orderd 4 hides and they are all about 5ish square feet.
I’m hoping that they will braid well once I cut them up. I’m planning on using them to make beginners bullwhips. These will be a bit fancier than my previous beginners bullwhips, as these will be 8 plait whips.
