12 plait nylon bullwhips are my newest design of bullwhips, first introduced in 2012. These are an entry level nylon whip priced for those on a budget. The whips are constructed with an integral steel handle, weighted with a BB filled sinker cord core with one 10 or 12 plait belly.
These bullwhips are narrower as compared to standard bullwhips, making them great for younger whipcrackers and those who prefer a whip with a thinner grip. The transition between the handle and thong is reinforced on each belly with a special wrapping made of artificial sinew. This makes for a very nice transition and a good handling whip.
Whips can be customized with different knots, colors, and patterns to suit your taste. In early 2009, I stopped finishing the thongs of my bullwhips with the tapered twist and began using a standard fall hitch. Standard handle length is 8″ with 12″ being the maximum length I will make at this time.
My 12 plait nylon bullwhips are used by The Cowboy Max Show.
As you use your whip, always watch for knots in the cracker and fall. Once a fall or cracker has a knot that been cracked into place, it is almost impossible to get the knot out. Do not leave your whip in the sun for long periods of time. Over exposure to the Sun destroys nylon fibers and will lead to an early retirement for your whip.
Light colored whips often get dirty with use. I have heard various ideas on whip cleaning such as spot cleaning using laundry detergent and water. I know one whip cracker who puts his nylon whips in a pillow case and throws them in the washing machine. I would suggest extreme caution if using that method!
If your whip is ever in need of repair please contact me.
*I do not make what has come to be known as a “DeLongis Style Bullwhip” as 12″ is the maximum handle length I make on bullwhips.
NOTE: Whips are normally constructed on a first come, first serve basis. When ordering, you will be placed on a waiting list.
