Here’s a couple more pictures of Bink and I cracking some bullwhips:
Bullwhip’s in Progess
Right now I’m working on a 12 plait kangaroo bullwhip, I have about 2 feet of it finished. It’s going to be an Indiana Jones style bullwhip, but with a 10 inch handle. I really like the extra bit of leverage that the 10 inch handle gives you (over an 8 inch handle). I’ll post some pictures of this bullwhip when I get a chance.
I also need to start working on some more budget whips for an Juggling Convention that I’ll be performing and selling whips at the last weekend in March.
I’ve got a side of Oil Tanned Cowhide that I’m going to try to use for the overlay to see how it turns out. I might also try making an 8 plait budget whip…going with an 8 plait requires about double the work that a 4 plait does, so I’m not too sure how “budget” that whip will be.
P.S. I still have a few budget bullwhips for sale on my IN STOCK whips page.
