Signal Whips…

July 5th, 2011

I recently started work on three signal whips.  All three of them are going to be four feet long and made from kangaroo.   First I made three shotbags:

single tail shot bags

Then I filled  them and cutout bolsters.  Here’s a picture of the progression of shotbags and attaching the bolsters:

And finally here’s the first completed signal whip:

8 plait signal whip

This signal whip is 8 plait with a 5 plait wrist loop.  This one is for sale on my IN STOCK whips page.  The next one is going to be a 12 plait signal whip in black kangaroo with two white strands.   The third signal whip will probably be a 16 plait signal whip.
