Mid West Whips (whip shop)

Mid West Whips (whip shop)

As part of my road trip to San Diego last week I made a detour and headed over to Nevada to visit Paul, Lauren and Nikko at Mid West Whips.  We had a great time talking whips and cracking them (cracking pic’s will be in another post).

Paul showed me a very interesting way to make a shotbag, which I’ve already made and used one.   Lauren taught me a bit about braiding nylon, which I knew was a lot different from leather, but never really realized how different!

Another highlight was getting to see some of the Cooley Collection in person!  The Henderson whips were amazing to look at…and as a bonusI got to crack a Henderson whip!

They are a talented  pair of whip makers!
