I ran into a guy that had a bullwhip that needed a new fall hitch. I retied it for him on the stop, he was more than thankful! I didn’t think to take a pic of it before the new fall hitch or after, but I did take one in the middle of putting a new one on
If you need a whip repair, fall replacement or new braided cracker you can get more info about those services here.
I feel like I’m always out of falls and crackers…and I usually need to make them. I think I feel like if I make a couple dozen I should be good for a year…when in reality that’s only going to last me a week or two before I have to make more.
I just made a few dozen the other day and these are already gone.
I’m going to have to make another batch in the next couple of days. If you need any you can get them here.
I’m cleaning out my shop and I found a roll of nylon that was almost finished. I didn’t make sense to have the whole roll kicking around that only had enough nylon for about 10 crackers, so I made the crackers.
Crackers are something that it always feels like I’m out, so it’s probably a good thing to have some kicking around.
I’ve got another Beginner’s Bullwhip in the works.
These whips have a plaited belly and a 4 plait cowhide overlay. They are designed for someone who wants to try out whip cracking without investing in a kangaroo whip. I’ll finish this whip up when I have some more free time and I’ll list in on my IN STOCK whips page.
I just went up to David Morgan to pick up some veg tanned, drum stuffed kangaroo!
Personally when I get kangaroo, I prefer the drum stuffed kangaroo. What drum stuffed means is that they have grease/oils worked into the skins in a large drum. You get even penetration of the grease into the skin and it gets worked in deeper than when you buy a dry skin and have to work it in by hand.
