Bullwhip handle taper

Bullwhip handle taper

Recently someone emailed me to ask how I get the handles of my bullwhips to taper. ┬áMine taper over the length of the handle, going from thin at the butt to thicker at the transition knot. ┬áHere’s an example:

My process for getting the handle to taper is exactly like the getting the thong to taper: Everything inside gets smaller or thinner.

That’s it.

No big secret, but it does take a bit of messing around to figure out the right proportions of the layers to get the look you want.
