This was a long build.  I was having a lot of trouble with a concho company and it ended up taking almost 3 weeks longer than it should.  The original build did not include any fancy plaiting, but because the customer had to wait so long, I re-plaited the overlay and gave it a little interest over the transition.  Pirate theme, 6.5 foot art whip, weighted to the tip.  Hand carved "floating" pirate skull graphic over a black handle.  There is a tiny bit of gold fleck in the black. finishing knots in blood red.  There is a tiny black pirate ship in the heel.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

I started this little project a year ago, brought my prototype with me to Germany with limited result.  Mainly, it looked crappy.  I wanted to get the new one done once and for all.  From core to knots, the whip is entirely made from 275 core.  It is lightly loaded exactly the same as my practical whips, the only 550 cord is the fall.  275 is just too tiny to try to double up.  I have my thoughts on using 275, but I really cant say too much until I can crack it in the heat, which, as you can see, still does not exist in Northwest Wisconsin.

This is my first long whip.  It is 9 feet, 18 plait in chocolate brown with desert camo knots.  The handle is painted with a textured hammered metal finish.  The heel is weighted, with a brass cabochon.  This is also my very first taper twist build, so it's a big pile of firsts for me.
