Pair of Bullwhips – Still in Progress…

Pair of Bullwhips – Still in Progress…

I feel like I’ve been working on this pair of bullwhips forever!  Currently I have the overlays completed and the falls attached.  I still need to do the knots, rolling and shellacing.

Also I might put on wrist loops and have these be a pair of Indy Bullwhips in saddle tan.  I haven’t decided yet.

These whips are being made as a matched pair, however I haven’t decided if I’m going to only sell them as a pair.   The main reason I made them the same was to make it more interesting / challenging for me.

  1. Louie,
    very nice taper!

    It would be a shame to separate them since they were built as a matched pair; it’s one thing to offer many similar whips, but a true matched pair is something else entirely! Just my 2 cents…
    Well done,

    1. Franco,

      Thanks for the compliment! Yes it I really don’t want to split them up, but the main reason I did them as a pair was to make it more fun for me. Maybe I’ll keep them as a pair…or maybe I’ll just keep them.

      Honestly until recently I never liked saddle tan. But for some reason the last few months I’ve started to like it and I think they are a good looking pair.

  2. I only like saddle tan when it is well greased and turns to a reddish-brown color. But I’m not a fan of the original orange tint myself.

    1. Some Saddle Tan is really “in your face” orange and some not. It’s been growing on me very slowly over the years.

      Someone just bought the pair of whips as a pair, so I don’t have to worry about breaking them up! Woo Hoo!
