I recently had this bullwhip come in:
It’s an 8 plait bullwhip that was made by Bernie at EM Brands whips. It had the end chewed off by a dog. After chatting with the owner we decided to just put the fall where the whip was chewed off and to leave the wrist loop as it is.
I had to unbraid about a foot of the whip to create a little bit of taper to the point of the whip.
I tied a new fall hitch at that point and we’re good to go!
