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:
