I’m still working on a matched pair of bullwhips. The progress is moving at a snails pace because of the busy performing season and I’m still getting over being sick.
Right now I”m braiding the outer bellies of the bullwhips. I’ve got both of them braided to the point where the inner belly ends. So my next step it to taper the filler strands, but I have to do both whips at the same time to get the same taper.
The reason you generally pay more for a matched pair than just two bullwhips is that it’s a much slower process to make them the same. The whip maker has to do a little bit of work on one whip, then switch to the next…so a bit of work, then switch back.
For speed, I’d rather just make two bullwhips, but for the challenge of making a matched pair, it’s a lot of fun!
Oh, today’s Whip Deal of the Day (for 12/17/09 only) is when you order any bullwhip that’s over $125, I’ll throw in Whip Cracking Made Easy Vol 1 and Vol 2 for FREE! You don’t need to do anything special to get the deal, just order a bullwhip that’s more than $125 and I’ll add the DVD’s when I’m boxing up your order.
Today’s Whip Deal of the Day (for 12/4/09 only) is that every whip order that is paid for today comes a free copy of Whip Cracking Made Easy Vol. 1 DVD. You don’t need to do anything special, just place your order and when I’m boxing it up to ship, I’ll add the DVD.
The only exception to this deal is if you order a Bullwhip Kit that already comes with Whip Cracking Made Easy Vol. 1, so if you order a Bullwhip Kit, I’ll add Whip Cracking Made Easy Vol 2 for free.
From now until December 18th, I’m going to be offering the Whip Deal of The Day. Every day I’ll post a different deal, and it could be something like a discount or something free with an order.
