DON JUAN DE LA CELESTE
My personal tribute and interpretation to the Zorro's whip
Thanks to Robby for this fantastic review as well
Gio

FEATURES:
6 ft long with 30 cm of handle and the overlay plaited with 16 strands, dyed by hand ending to 8 plaited point.

INTERNAL CONSTRUCTION:
Double cowhide core ( for better gain and responding ) four kangaroo belly, cowhide bolster, four kangaroo belly and cowhide bolster.
In every layers of the whip there is a long binding over the handle in order to give and add more leverage for more cracking routines.

BRAIDING PATTERN AND KNOTS:

- Wrist flat braided loop in eight gaucho braid
- Silver plate with my logo and my initials engraved on it
- Heel knot in Gaucho knot 7L6B (2passes)
- Double silver rings locked with a Spanish Ring Knot with gaucho interweave.
- First part of the handle plaited in Short Harringbone sequence ( under two, over two)
- Central part of the handle plaited in Gaucho Braid pattern
- Last part of the handle in Short Harringbone sequence ( under two, over two)
- Floreal ferule locked by two Spanish Ring Knot with gaucho interweave
- Thong of the whip plaited in 16 strands in the classic fashion over four under four
