I’m currently working on a 10 foot 12 plait bullwhip in black kangaroo. When the order came in I was out of kangaroo, so I made a little trip up to visit everyone at David Morgan. One thing I love about getting kangaroo skins from David Morgan is that I’ve never gotten a bad skin from them. They always pull exactly what I need!
This bullwhip has a 10 inch handle and cow leather core:
The inner plaited belly was made from some leftover brown kangaroo that I had kicking around.
Then the inner bolster is cow leather and this is a short bolster that doesn’t cover the entire handle.
I’ve got the next belly cut out of the outside of the black kangaroo skin that I bought yesterday, however I need to pare it and split it down to a uniform thickness.
