Yesterday the kangaroo skin for the Cat O’ Nine Tails arrived:
I’m making a pair of these and normally in the past when I’ve made them they handle was make like a signal whip with a shot core and not rigid. These are being made with a fiberglass handle which will be fairly rigid, but still have a bit of flex to them.
Here’s one of them with one of the tails plaited and the lace for two more attached:
Plaiting all the tails and tying all the knots is very time consuming!
