Fibula Handle Bullwhip

For about a decade I’ve wanted to make a bullwhip that had a human bone for a handle. A while ago I found a fibula that would be perfect for the handle of a short bullwhip. This whip internally has a core, bolster and plaited belly.

Here’s the overlay:

I started braiding in the middle of the bone handle so that I could get the plaiting nice and tight where it was going to start on the finished whip. I also lashed it down tightly with string.

And here’s the finished whip:

Here’s a close up of the handle:

This whip has a great crack and I think it’s a cool functional piece of art!
