Yesterday I got a bit more plaiting in on the lash of the 5 foot bullwhip (but not much more). However I did tie the transition knot:
The interweave on the turkshead is kangaroo rawhide. I was doing something else with the rawhide and had some leftover so I did the interweave with it. This interweave will give this bullwhip a very unique look! Rawhide (usually cow) is used for interweaves on knots in a lot of cowboy gear…but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it used in knots on a bullwhip before. The reason it’s not used more is that it’s a pain to work with!
