8 Foot Bullwhip

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!

Beginners Bullwhip…

Beginners Bullwhip…

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.

It’s finally dry enough outside to go out and test crack a couple of bullwhips.  Here’s a 8 foot 8 inch Indy bullwhip that’s not quite finished (I’ll post more about this bullwhip later):

Also here’s the 8 foot Young Indy bullwhip, the more I look at this bullwhip and have now cracked it the more I want to keep it…but I don’t have the space.
