Topic: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

.

In the GEAR magazine (it's about outdoor stuff, tools, jackets, knifes, tents and all that) was an article, a portrait about Whip Basics and me  smile
The text is all german, but you can see the pics. The story tells about how I started the WB project, how I came to whips in general and so on.
It tells about the help for the animal shelters which is connected to WB
and shows some whips. It shows whips from Rhett Kelley and Skip, too. But both weren't here for a long time.

And - yes - germans love this cowboy look...

Enjoy,
Robbby

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Congratulations Robby!! That's just awesome.

Looks like Rhett, Guy, Tyler, and a few other makers may just benefit from the article as well !

I was just thinking the other day about how I've never seen an article on whips in a gear magazine, funny how these things happen

Cool!  Thanks for posting this, Robby!  I've never wished I was bilingual more than I do now  smile Do you know if they will ship back issues to the US?  Even though I can't read German I wouldn't mind having some copies of that.  Happy cracking,
Tyler

Congrats Robby, it's great when someone who has given sooo much is recognized for their contributions:) Your passion for an art that we all love is unparalleled!
  As Tyler had hinted, is there anyway we can get an issue here in the US?

What I do is only possible because of the passion you whipmakers have!
All I can do is to crack a whip and teach the art. Without the whipmakers,
these artists, I could do nothing. So I have to say thanks to all of you!

And for the magazine... I already gave Tyler the contacts. Perhaps he can order some magazines for those who are interested...?

All the best,
Robby

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Would love a copy Myself. Robby you under estimate your worth in this Whipmaking Community. Without your advice and the reviews the new makers would have problems getting started as quickly as they do.
It seems you give Something to aim for.
Every one needs a push sometimes and You certainly help.

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Thank you for the kind words. All I do is telling the truth and the facts. When folks ask me what I am, I keep telling them that I'm kinda ground school teacher up to third grade. The title "whip master" is used so inflationary... I'm happy with what I am and what I do  smile  Anyway - thanks again!

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Update:  I've e-mailed them but not heard anything back yet.  I'll try them again, squeaky wheel gets the grease.  Robby, I consider you to be on a level with the late great Ron Edwards in terms of helping to preserve and revive the arts of whipcracking and whipmaking smile

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Tyler, i can't agree more.
We just need to tell the facts and the truth.

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

A bit late for me, but wow smile very nice. I'm sure this will go a long way in the introduction of whips in the modern world.

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Very Well Done Everyone!  Very Nice.

Re: Article in a german Lifestyle magazine

Just found this! That's really awesome Robby. Indeed, I don't get around the forum much, but I pop in every so often. I appreciate the support and am very delighted to see how everyone is progressing.

I was supposed to have gotten a write-up along with 2 other whipmakers in the American Rifleman magazine published by the National Rifle Association here in the States. Even sent a cow whip to the NRA headquarters. Sadly, the article was never approved by the editorial staff and that was that. This is very encouraging.
