Australian Bullwhip

Australian Bullwhip

Last night I put the knots on the Australian Bullwhip that I was working on.  I broke a strand near the point of the whip, so I shortened it from six feet to 5 1/2 feet.  I didn’t want to add in a strand right at the fall hitch.   I still need to give it a coat of shellac.

5.5 foot bullwhip

I threw this bullwhip a couple of times on my deck and it cracks well.  I’m hoping for better weather so I can take it to the park and give it a workout later today.

16 plait bullwhip

I really am liking how the 16 plait looks and hopefully I’ll be doing more work in 16 plait in the future!
