Snakewhips

In my opinion snakewhips are not much of a whip, because of the absence of a solid handle. For a similar whip the bullwhip is far superior. The snakewhips are made with a leather shot bag, a bolster, then an plaited belly, another bolster and then over all this the overlay is plaited.  Each whip comes with a spare fall,  5 extra crackers and a container of leather dressing. A personally signed (by me), laminated certificate is an extra cost of $10.00. Two tone is an extra $40.00.  Initials can be plaited in the two tone whips at no extra cost.   I can make any length whip and amount of strands you want. Just get in touch with me and I will give you a price if it is not here.

WARNING:  DO take care when cracking your whip, make sure there is no one near you. When a whip cracks the tip is travelling at over 1400 feet per second. That is faster than the speed of sound and in some cases faster than a bullet. If your whip hits anything or anyone when it cracks it is quite capable of cutting flesh and breaking bones. So DO be careful.
