Mini Bullwhip

Mini Bullwhip

I was cleaning up the other day and found a small piece of stingray that I had bought a long time ago.  It was only about 6 inches long, so I’m not sure what my original plan was for it because it’s not long enough for an 8 inch bullwhip handle.  After finding it I decided to make a Mini Bullwhip.  

This Mini Bullwhip is 4 feet long has a plaited belly, a shot loaded core and a 5.5 inch handle.  Originally I was going to do a two tone knot on this Mini Bullwhip like the transition knot in the picture below.

My original thinking was a white highlights would compliment the stingrays white pearl.   After I tied that knot I realized it overpowered the white in the stingray.  So I decided to go with all black knots.

I still need to roll this whip and shellac it.  It should be listed for sale on my IN STOCK whips page later today.
