4.5 Two Tone Bullwhip

4.5 Two Tone Bullwhip

Here’s a 4 1/2 foot bullwhip that I finished making a long time ago, but haven’t listed for sale until now.  I was going to make it as part of a pair of whips, but never got around to making it’s match, so I’m selling it as a single whip.

This bullwhip is normally $325, however I’m offering a Holiday Speical Price on it.  Right now you can get $25 discount on it, so it’s only $300 (with worldwide shipping included!).   To order it visit the IN STOCK whips page.

Order it for delivery in the USA before 12/20/16 and according to the USPS it will arrive by Christmas!

Two Bullwhips Finished

Two Bullwhips Finished

Yesterday I finished up two bullwhips.  The first is an 8 foot 16 plait bullwhip:

The bullwhip above is going out in the mail to its new owner this morning.  The second bullwhip is a Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhip:

This bullwhip has been made for the beginners bullwhip cracking workshop that I’m doing at the Pacific Northwest Juggling Convention.   While this bullwhip is intended for that workshop, you are more than welcome to buy it and I’ve got it listed on my IN STOCK whips page.  Hopefully I’ll find time to make a few more before the convention starts at the end of the month.

8 foot Bullwhip…

8 foot Bullwhip…

I’m still working on the 8 foot bullwhip, I’m hoping to have it finished by Thursday night because I’m leaving town Friday for five days and would like this bullwhip in the mail before I leave.  Here’s the handle with the lead attached:

One thing about making whips is that sometimes it seems you do more  untangling of strands than you do braiding.  When you plait a whip you are plaiting where you are working, and you are also plaiting the ends of the strands as well, that’s what creates the tangles:

The bullwhip currently has about 22 inches of the overlay plaited:

 

I’ve still got over 6 feet of plaiting, and knots and shellacing before it can be shipped out.

Stock Whip Pair

Stock Whip Pair

Here’s the pair of stock whips that I started last week now that they are finished:

It’s amazing the different in the amount of energy your body saves once lead is put in the handles!  A bit of lead makes the whips much easier to hold on to.  Also I tried out these whips with kangaroo and with white hide falls (one on each lash) and cracked them on the same handles.

After trying it with both types of falls I was surprised to find out that I preferred a kangaroo fall over the whitehide.  Keep  in mind this is on a pair of stock whips which quite often have a finer point than a bullwhip.  Here’s the two stock whips being test cracked once I put a kangaroo fall on the second lash:

My current project is another two tone bullwhip. This one is also black and saddle tan and 16 plait with some designs in the handle.

I’ve got it plaited to the 3 foot mark and today I should have time to get some more work on it done!

Also today is the last day to order anything IN STOCK if you want it delivered by Christmas (in the USA) and today is the last day that everything IN STOCK is 10% off.

Bullwhip on ebay!

Bullwhip on ebay!

Yesterday I listed the 16 plait kangaroo bullwhip on ebay.  I figured it would make a great last minute Christmas present for someone (or yourself).  I did a shorter auction so that it ends in time for it to be delivered in the USA by Christmas.

Click here to view the auction!

Normally this bullwhip would sell for $490, but during this auction the opening bid is only $325 and the “Buy It Now” is $425.  This is a great chance to get a sweet deal on this bullwhip.

Also from now until Tuesday 12/20/11 at 1pm all of the whips on my IN STOCK whips page are 10% off.
