Last night I put the final coat of shellac on this 8 foot Kingdom of the Crystal Skull style bullwhip. It’s 12 plait made with whiskey and brandy colored kangaroo skins.
This bullwhip is 12 plait and it drops to an 8 plait point.
The knots are the same kind that Terry Jacka used on the bullwhip used in the latest Indiana Jones movie.
I think that this is one of the best bullwhips that I’ve made so far. It’s got a nice taper and a great crack! The only thing I don’t like about this bullwhip is that it was made for someone else, and I can’t keep it for myself!
Once this bullwhip ships out on Monday I will have offically cleared out my waiting list of bullwhips! It’s a nice feeling to be able to work on what I want to work on. I’d like to make a pair of 4 or 4 1/2 foot bullwhips for myself.
I also want to do some more signal whips, I’m facinated by the braided cracker on them. I don’t know why, but I think they look cool with the braided cracker. Also I need to shoot some video of a new trick shot I’m doing with a signal whip (turning off and on a lamp with it!).
