16 Plait Bullwhip and another whip

The 16 plait bullwhip is finished and it’s listed on my IN STOCK whips page.  Here are a couple of pics of it:

My next project is another 16 plait bullwhip, however there will be a difference between the two.  The bullwhip above has a 12 inch 3/8 spike for the handle and the next one will have a 12 inch spring steel rod.  The spring steel is much light and thinner so besides being a bit lighter the whip will also have a thinner profile.  Also spring steel of the diameter that I’m using has a very slight bit of flex which will enhance how this bullwhip cracks.

Here’s the bullwhip in its current state:

This bullwhip has it’s out belly plaited and at the very least today I’ll be able to get the outer bolster on.

I got the THICK kangaroo hides that were used to make these bullwhips from David Morgan.

I naturally darkened the hides a bit before I made the bullwhips.
