Re: Giovanni Celeste

Beautiful Giovanni. I do especially like the checkerboard pattern on the bullwhip. For the stockwhip - I just recently saw a picture of an old whip with a similar axial keeper and have been thinking about it ever since. Yours is the only only other one, and the only modern one, I have ever seen.

Giovanni - You sir, are an artist!

Re: Giovanni Celeste

Man Gio,  These whips get better and better.  They are all beautiful but personally I really like the black with silver handle.  It just looks cool.  I bet the 8 seam was very time consuming but hey, the finished product looks awesome.

Robert, I promise you that sooner or later you'll get one of my whip.

Re: Giovanni Celeste

Gio - thanks for your kind offer, but - for the records! - that was only and really just a joke! I was not serious about sending them to me in any way! I need to say that, because I don't want anyone here to think/say: "Oh… Look at Mr. Amper - he expects to receive free whips…". I don't do that in any way. Serious, Gio - thanks again to you, but my comment was never meant serious and I don't expect anything from you or anyone else!

Re: Giovanni Celeste

I must admit that i had reasoned with my heart without considering your role within the Forum ....
I thought to my friend Robert. In any case, I have one word and when i’ve more free time I will give you a special whip. (I also have the idea of ??the model :-) ...) Of course, my desire is not a marketing strategy but simply an act of gratitude to my friend. then when you receive my gift of course you will be free not to publicize it.
Many Thanks
Gio

Re: Giovanni Celeste

I know that what you wrote, was written from your heart. And if you like to make me a whip, some day, I'll be more than happy, grateful and honored! I know that you don't do that for marketing reasons. And therefore it would be a great pleasure for me to show it to the world. If one friend makes a whip for another friend... Where could be a problem?

But thank you for your explanation. I appreciate it!

Re: Giovanni Celeste

Hi All,
these are some of my work recently done.
Surely the braided leash has already been seen in previous posts, but I thought I'd put it in this space because it representative of what I do

Re: Giovanni Celeste

Thanks a lot Bobbi, the raiders dog leash is my little pride because I think I was the first to have the idea to do it with an Indy look.
