I’m making my handles a bit differently than I used to. In the past the handle was visibly thinner than the thong. Now it’s almost as thick as the thong. Visually I prefer them being close to the same width. After making a few like this I think it’s one of the differences between the new indys (Jacka) and the old indy (morgan) is the handle width. Morgan’s have a slightly thinner handle than the Jacka whips.
Also I’ve finished my Bullwhip Making for the Beginner book and you can get the “pre-release” of it now. Basically the pre-release has some typos, if you help me find them you save a couple of bucks on the book. You can order the book by clicking the following link: http://bullwhips.org/?page_id=144
