Finished 8 foot Bullwhip

Finished 8 foot Bullwhip

I finished this bullwhip last week and got it shipped out Thursday.  Here’s the finished whip:

One thing I did on this whip was make it with the upper knot a darker color.  Most whip makers when they do this they use leather that is dyed a different color at the tannery.  The whip is made from natural tan kangaroo and the  upper knot is also made from natural tan kangaroo that I had aged.

I always think it’s neat to see the color of the leather now, and the color of the leather that it will eventually become!

Also I’ve got another whip that I made as a fun project for me on ebay right now.  It’s a 6.5 foot two tone bullwhip.  It’s a steal at the starting price!  You can view the auction at:
