Another 4 Foot bullwhip!

Another 4 Foot bullwhip!

I just finished the overlay of a second four foot bullwhip.

It still needs to be rolled and knots added, but I did try it out and it’s got a great crack!

I’m making these whips production line style. I’m trying to make them all in stages at the same time. All of them will get the knots done at the same time, instead of having completing one whip then moving onto the next. When making more than one whip, doing it this way saves a lot of time.

4 Foot Bullwhip…

4 Foot Bullwhip…

Right now I’m working on a few shorter bullwhips for performers to use at indoor shows. These whips will be in the less than 5 foot range.

Currently I’m working on two four foot bullwhips and one four and half foot bullwhip. I’ve got all of the internal layers for all four whips finished. Today I did the overlay for one of them:

I still need to roll this whip and put knots on it. I did give it a crack in my living room and it’s got a great crack!

Bullwhip Repair

Bullwhip Repair

Last week I had a swivel handle bullwhip come in for a repair:

It needed the point replaited and a fall put on it, otherwise it was in OK shape. This bullwhip is was made by Buckheimer:

After redoing the point and adding a fall, it came out great:

This is one the way back to its owner. If you’ve got a whip that needs a repair, send me a note and we can chat about it!

Whip Adjustment

Whip Adjustment

I just had a whip come in for an adjustment. I think it was originally a signal whip, I didn’t make it, so I’m not 100% positive.

Based on how the loose ends looked, it appears there was a cracker on the end previously. The new owner wanted at slapper put on. Here’s the finished whip:

single tail whip

I thinned down the slapper;s end and it runs several inches into the point of the whip. That should hold it securely. then I put a fall hitch to secure the strands at the point of the whip.

If you’ve got a whip that needs a repair or adjustment, feel free to contact me to chat about it!

This has been shipped back to it’s owner!
