Stock Whip Repair…

Stock Whip Repair…

I recently had a stock whip made by Jim Hurlbutt come in for a fall replacement.  Here’s the whip when it got to me:

and here’s close up of the fall keeper.  The fall had broken off right at the keeper.

The first thing I did was give it a coat of grease as the whip was very dry.   After letting that soak in I put the new fall on and it was back in the mail to its owner in a flash!

Jim put an interesting knot on the handle:

I’ve done a whip or two like that, but not very many.
