Re: My whips this far

I really like this colour scheme, and you've done really well on the english eye!~
I've always wondered, how do you do such a small transition knot without worrying that it'll slide around?

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

Re: My whips this far

Thanks Brandon!
I make some binding with waxed thread so there is small bulge in the middle. When you make your knot it really grabs it becose of the shape. I have used a small leather strip as well in some of my builds.

Very nice indeed, Jyri - and I like what I take to be the 'Finnish blue' very much!  smile

Re: My whips this far

That's a nice build, Jyri. I've yet to try the english eye and reverse plaiting - it's on the list of things to do though!

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: My whips this far

Nicely done Jyri.
The handle looks really nice.
Be proud.

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

Thank you everyone!

Re: My whips this far

Very good work, Jyri!

The plaiting and the knots look very clean and precise, the plaiting patterns on the handle and the combination of colors look very stylish and the video that you've posted about this whip shows that it performs fantastic!

All the best

Re: My whips this far

Jyri - I like it. How long is the handle ? It looks longer than i maybe is, but is it for targetwork !!

How does it perform - can't wait to see

Here is a short vid about it.
In Finland we use these orange plastic tubes to mark roads so when snow is being removed the tractor wont go to grass next from the road. They are 2-2,5cm thick and thats how my wide my target is. When i'm out i use them as a target and with this whip i can hit them quite often.

Re: My whips this far

Jyri - that look great, and for me it seem like it just roll out very smooth. Thank you for showing smile

Be carefull, that you don't spread ideas - for one second I just have that thought that i would be fun with some orange markings in the Garden - but in that case they would miss somewhere else smile

Today is a good day

Jyri, I really like that color combination. The blue and gray look really great together.
