Here’s a bullwhip that’s 8 feet long with a 12 plait two tone overlay:
I’ve been working on this bullwhip off and on for a little bit. It’s an order for a friend of mine that needed it mid-January, so I worked on it in between other projects.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a two tone whip with a plaited pattern. It was fun to do!
It’s shipping out today, almost a month ahead of schedule!
Yesterday I finished a 4 plait cowhide beginners bullwhip.
This bullwhip is 8 feet long and has a 12 inch handle. It’s made with a leather core, plaited belly and 4 plait overlay. I threw this bullwhip on my deck last night and it’s got a great crack!
The 12 inch handle gives this bullwhip plenty of leverage and a nice in the hand weight, that makes this a great bullwhip for beginners. I’m thinking I’m going to make most of my beginners bullwhips with the longer handle.
