4 feet length now available!
Nylon woody bullwhips are constructed using a BB filled cord core, two plaited bellies, and a 16 plait overlay attached to a wood handle that I turn on my lathe. The first belly is an 8 plait belly, the second is a 12 plait, and the final overlay is 16 plait. 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. Exotic wood species and availability subject to change and there may be an additional charge for certain varieties; prices are listed in the handle selection drop-down. Standard overall handle length is 14″ with 8.5″ of exposed wood.
Nylon woody bullwhip prices are higher when compared to other whips here, but these whips are by far the most painstaking whip to craft as they require me to utilize my wood turning skills and bullwhip making skills all in one whip.
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!
