A few days ago I took the stock whip made with Veg Tanned Leather out to the park for some test cracking. Here’s me swinging it around:
Also I’ve begun work on a pair of stock whips made from kangaroo. This pair of stock whips are going have 8 plait lashes. The belly was cut from natural tan kangaroo.
The overlay was cut from black and red kangaroo:
And I have put the keepers on the handles:
I still need to do a lot of plaiting before these are finished. Both lashes need another 2 and a half feet before they are done and the handles need their half plait handles done.
I’m excited to see how these two stock whips turn out!
