Beautiful work, Rachel!
I realy like the handle and the different patterns on the thong - especialy the checkerboard pattern at the transition is very stylish and functional at the same time!

All the best

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

That was made for me. To be specific - it was made for the WB Meeting. I wanted to teach a way more elegant and slow way to crack a whip, than the usual "Machine Gun" style. "A Whip Crack...loud as a gunshot!" So I asked Rachel for a whip, that rolls out not only slow, but very slow. And I asked for a red fall, so the motion of the whip is even more visible. And on top I asked for some leather wrapping on the handle, because I needed a safe grip. Those who were with me at the WB Meeting could see that I hold the whip sometimes only with two fingers. Because if you know what you do - and the tool is from the highest possible quality - sometimes two fingers are enough.

And now the whip looks like this...

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

When I tried this whip last Friday, for the first time, my immediate thought was, 'I want one!' Watching Robby on Saturday confirmed this desire. I have told Rachel. I'll have to wait a bit, but one day - one day....

Thanks very much for posting these photos, Robby!  smile

That message came through for sure... wink
At some points I thought: „Unbelievable that it works THAT slow“ The motion WAS indeed visible.

And as pointed out by others already: what a beauty of a whip with its different plaiting patterns!

Thank y'all.  It was my pleasure to make. 
Robby, Thank you for the beautiful pictures: your skill in photography really set it off.

Inch by inch.

I was only pointing into the direction of the whip. You did the rest...!

Maybe there is a video of the whip in action at the M&G.
Videos speak a million words.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

I happen to know thta those are great whips.  Enjoy yours, Robby!

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Well, I felt in love after borrowing it for 15 minutes.
I am not good at whipcracking, but Never the less, I enjoy to see it roll out and feel the motuin of the whip in my body.

Very well done indeed miss Rachel

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Thank you, Scott; I will for sure  smile

Flemming - it is not important how good you are at whip cracking.
You found new friends and discovered a beautiful blue sky.

That is what really matters.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Yes Robby.

I learned that, and I am smiling while enjoying our small garden while cracking.

Thank you

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Thank y'all very much;
Flemming, I appreciate it so much!  Robby is right, the blue sky and that contentment is the best of all!

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Beatiful whip Rachel!

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Very Cool! Love the wrapping on the handle in combination with the black whip and red fall.

Whether you can or you can't you are probably right.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

It is wonderful to hold, to feel the smoothness of the handle and watch the thong as it rolls out. I will be placing an order for an exact replica of this as soon as I possibly can. I will wait for as long as it takes for Rachel to complete because I know it will be worth it!

One, two, three... "WOOF!"

Beautiful whip! I'd like to see footage of your technique sometime.
