You're very welcome Robert,
this has been a very special experience for me, and I'm very pleased at how things turned out.

NICE handle!

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

That is a sweet handle! The honeycomb pattern sits nicely between the bird's eye.

The whip is shipped at last.
My apologies again for the delay Robert.
I've messaged you the tracking details, should be with you tomorrow.

Re: Where are the whips...???

Thanks very much, Fritz! (I've just sent you the money for the postage.)

I can hardly wait!

Re: Where are the whips...???

The whip is here! Photos and a report will follow within a day or so, when I've had a chance to put it through its paces - but I think it's terrific! Thanks so much to both Fritz and Roy! smile

Re: Where are the whips...???

That's great, Mr. Robert!!!  After all that, and your surgery, I think this is one special whip smile  Have fun wink

Inch by inch.

Re: Where are the whips...???

Thanks, Rachel. And my hand has almost healed enough to hold it firmly!  smile

Re: Where are the whips...???

Mr. Robert, I'm so very glad to hear that!!!!  I bet your healing hand is like the trigger finger of the fastest draw in the West- itching to practice!

Inch by inch.

Re: Where are the whips...???

Rachel, you've got it in one! Itching is exactly the word! smile

'Less is often more!'

31

Re: Where are the whips...???

That's a good word- it usually means healing!  Really glad to hear it, Mr. Robert smile

Inch by inch.

Awesome, now you can work that itch. wink
Glad it got there without any further delays.
Look forward to hearing what you think.

Re: Where are the whips...???

Was that the last whip? Are there any more outstanding?

34

Re: Where are the whips...???

Fritz, I'd hoped to give your whip a good workout yesterday, but found that my hand hasn't quite healed enough to hold it properly. Another week or so, and I should be able to get cracking. (It's only just over four weeks since the surgery.) As soon as I can grip it firmly, nothing will stop me! Meanwhile, I can admire it constantly!

Re: Where are the whips...???

Don't stress the injury too much, give it time, ........... or change hands wink

36

Re: Where are the whips...???

'Change hands,' you suggest. That seems obvious, of course - but, due to severe arthritis in my left shoulder, I've not been able to crack a whip left-handed for about fifteen years. Sigh! Still, for someone who's wearing out in all sorts of ways, I think I'm doing remarkably well. smile

'Less is often more!'

37

Re: Where are the whips...???

No need to rush it and undo your progress Mr Robert. That whip will still be there when you are completely healed.

He died for me, I'll live for him

38

Re: Where are the whips...???

Fritz and Roy are right, not much sense in giving your hand too much stress and risk undoing weeks of healing. The whip is not going anywhere smile

Re: Where are the whips...???

Thanks, guys! You're right, of course - and I must squash my impatience!  smile

Re: Where are the whips...???

I think, the last one is the pipe whip from Tyler which goes to Fritz. But then it should be done. Robert Wurth was obviously that much interested in the whip he received from Robert Gage that he even did not mention it. Sorry. Had to say that.
