Right now I’ve started a little project that I’ve always wanted to do. I’m making a four whips, each will be four feet long and of a different type. So there will be a signal whip, snake whip, bull whip and a stock whip. They all will be made with similar plaiting and look, however I haven’t decided if they will be 8 or 12 plait.
So far I have the cores cut out:
And the cores have been assembled and are currently letting grease soak in:
I’ve also cut out all the bellies and sometime later today I should have a chance to at least do the strand prep…and maybe some plaiting.
Ideally I’d sell these as a set of four whips, but I don’t know if buying four whips at once would be cost prohibitive or not. We’ll see…
Also this is a quick heads up that I’m leaving town on 2/1/13 for a couple of weeks, so if you are looking for a custom made whip you will need to order in the next day or two if you want it to ship out before I leave.
