Bullwhip Progress…

Bullwhip Progress…

I’ve gotten some plaiting in today and finished about 4 1/2 feet of the overlay for this whip:

 

8 foot 12 plait bullwhip with rawhide core

I started to do some fancy plaiting on the handle of this bullwhip…but then I decided I that I was going to make this bullwhip in the style of the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull bullwhip.  

The rawhide core will give the whip the look of the stiffened transition of the Terry Jacka Bullwhip.

Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Bullwhip…

Here’s my first attempt at making a Indiana Jones; Kingdom of the Crystal Skull style bullwhip.

I gave it a couple of throws on my deck earlier today and I’m very happy with how this whip turned out.

This bullwhip is 8 feet long and has a whitehide fall.

This bullwhip has the transition that is heavily bound giving it a “Jacka like feel”.
