Very nice job.
The stock whip looks very good.

Yesterday I spotted an albino dalmatian.
It was the least I could do for him.

Re: My whips this far

Very impressive work. I love the black one with the off-colored fall and number 11.
There's certainly a lot of improvement from whip to whip. Well done.

You've chosen wisely...

I really like the pattern on number 8.  Very clean, too.

If I can't run fast, I'll make slow look impressive.

Re: My whips this far

Very nice. I'm torn between the stock whip and the bullwhip with the wooden handle.  I'm becoming more attached to wood on a whip lately.

Why did she fall? Her mass distorted space-time to produce the effect we know as gravity...

Re: My whips this far

Looks great Jyri!

The wooden handle ones are really nice - especially the stock whip. Which wood did you use?

If I can offer a word of advise - otherwise your whips look really good, but they would benefit
you paying more attention to the last foot of the plaiting. What I can tell from the pictures it's
a bit crowded at the end there. I would recommend reducing the diameter of the core or increasing the plait count.

Thanks everyone!
Erik, its spruce, an old broom handle wich i tapered, burned and waxed.
Thanks for the advice, i try to do better job. It is hard for me to decide when to drop strands and some times i do it too late and they do bunch up

Re: My whips this far

#11 for me too. Gorgeous.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: My whips this far

The last one is my favorite! I love how it looks, at a glance, like a half-plait stockwhip.

Jyri, you're just pumping out cool whips left right and centre!! I absolutely love your colour choices, very well done ^_^
How do you do your heel knots? They look chunky!
