Yesterday I listed the 16 plait kangaroo bullwhip on ebay. I figured it would make a great last minute Christmas present for someone (or yourself). I did a shorter auction so that it ends in time for it to be delivered in the USA by Christmas.
Click here to view the auction!
Normally this bullwhip would sell for $490, but during this auction the opening bid is only $325 and the “Buy It Now” is $425. This is a great chance to get a sweet deal on this bullwhip.
Also from now until Tuesday 12/20/11 at 1pm all of the whips on my IN STOCK whips page are 10% off.
The 16 plait bullwhip is finished and it’s listed on my IN STOCK whips page. Here are a couple of pics of it:
My next project is another 16 plait bullwhip, however there will be a difference between the two. The bullwhip above has a 12 inch 3/8 spike for the handle and the next one will have a 12 inch spring steel rod. The spring steel is much light and thinner so besides being a bit lighter the whip will also have a thinner profile. Also spring steel of the diameter that I’m using has a very slight bit of flex which will enhance how this bullwhip cracks.
Here’s the bullwhip in its current state:
This bullwhip has it’s out belly plaited and at the very least today I’ll be able to get the outer bolster on.
P.S. Remember if you order an IN STOCK whip by 1pm Seattle time on 12/20/11 it will arrive by Christmas!
I finally finished work on the 12 plait bullwhip made from goat leather that I started work on a long time ago! Here’s it before the heel knot was put on:
and after the knot and wrist loop was put on:
This bullwhip is available on my IN STOCK whips page.
I’ve also started working on a matched pair of 6 foot bullwhips:
Not much has been done on this pair, basically I’ve got cores cut out:
Later this week I’ll have more of a chance to get more work in on these.
When I started doing the Whip Deal of the Day, I didn’t have any plans for the preset for what I’d offer each day. Usually the special deal is thought of that morning. Today I’m sick with a bit of a cold and don’t want to think, so…
Today’s Whip Deal of the Day (for 12/9/09 only) is for you to make an offer. Give me a call at 206-669-3928 or email me and make me an offer, I don’t guarantee I’ll accept your offer, but if it’s a reasonable offer, you’ll get a great deal on a whip!
Keep in mind that since I have a cold, you might catch me while I’m all loopy on cold medicine and get a GREAT deal that a clear headed Louie might not have accepted!
Today’s Whip Deal of the Day (for 12/2/09 only) is 20% off all IN STOCK whips (snake whips, bullwhips and signal whips) that are 8 feet long or shorter.
This sale includes all the Budget Bullwhips that I have IN STOCK right now, so this is a great chance to get a cheap bullwhip!
Here’s the 8 foot KotCS style bullwhip finished and shellac’d up:
I’m very proud of how this bullwhip came out, both in looks and in function.
My next projects are a 4 foot and a 6 foot bullwhips in RED kangaroo…but those aren’t for specific orders, so they probably will get put on hold when my next batch of kangaroo hides arrives (hopefully tomorrow or the next day).
P.S. The 8 foot KotCS Bullwhip is for sale on my IN STOCK page
