This morning I’m shipping out a 6 foot Beginner’s Bullwhip.
These are great whips to learn on. They are fairly simple in design which makes them a wonderful, inexpensive first whip. I’ve got two more of them available for immediate shipping on my IN STOCK whips page.
I’ve had some extra time the last couple of weeks and used that time to make a couple of the Beginner’s Bullwhips. These bullwhips are made of cowhide (mostly). They have a leather core, 4 plait belly and 4 plait overlay. The knots are kangaroo.
All of these whips are 6 feet long. I just listed them on the IN STOCK whips page. There are only three…you can get one, two or all three.
The other day I finished up a 4 plait cowhide Beginners Bullwhip.
This bullwhip is 6 feet long and has all leather internal layers built on a 10 inch steel spike handle foundation.
I’ve listed this whip on my Whips – IN STOCK page.
This morning I’m shipping out a 4 plait leather (cow) to it’s new owner:
These whips will do all the basic cracks and the 4 plait overlay is much more durable than a finer 16 plait bullwhip.
I’ve got one more of these Beginner’s Bullwhips in stock and they’re a great intro to whip cracking!
Yesterday I finished work on a 4 plait kangaroo bullwhip and it’s shipping out today to it’s new owner.
I gave it a few cracks yesterday and it’s got a nice crack to it!
The nice thing about having to buy an oversized kangaroo skin to cut this out from is that I probably have enough leftover for a 4 foot bullwhip!
For all of the readers of this blog in the USA, have a happy Thanksgiving!
Since my wife doesn’t let me do any of the Thanksgiving cooking, so I’m up in the shop working on a couple of whips:
These are going to be two of the Beginner’s Bullwhips that I make. I plaited both bellies a while ago and I cut out the overlays this morning. I’m using some free time today to hopefully finish them up…or at least get the overlays finished.
It’s been a while since I’ve made any of my “Beginner’s Bullwhips”. This one is one of the deluxe models which has a plaited belly.
This particular bull whip is 5 feet long and would make a great first whip to learn the basic whip cracks on. This whip is for sale on my IN STOCK whips page.
I’m planning on making a couple of more of these, probably a 6 foot and an 8 foot in the near future.
I finally finished the pair of Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhips that I was working on!
Both of these whips were made as a pair and are 6 1/2 feet long and have a plaited belly inside!
For now I’m only offering them for sale as a pair and I’m bundling them with a copy of Mike Murphy’s Fundamental Whipcracking Techniques DVD!
Here’s a quick test cracking video:
I just listed them for sale on my IN STOCK whips page!
Right now I’m working on making a pair of Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhips. I don’t know if I’ll sell them as a pair, but for fun I’m making them as a pair! So far I’ve got the cores finished:
And the bellies and overlays cut out:
Hopefully I’ll get these finished today or tomorrow!
Bullwhip Teaching Gig
Just today it was reported that Brittany Spears is looking for someone to teach her to use a bullwhip for her next video. The casting note says:
“Looking for a girl or guy who knows how to handle and use a bull whip. Must be a professional at using a bullwhip. Do not submit if you think you know how to use it. Only submit if you truly know how to use it and are a pro at it. We will be taping your skills at using a bullwhip and will remember you if you are not that good and was submitted for this. Whoever is booked will teach Britney how to do the whip and we will use inserts of the booked talent using the whip.”
If that’s something you can do look into it!
