Lovely whip, Rachel. Even though we expect every whip to be fabulous, you still manage to go beyond our expectations.

Mr. Robert, I think that's the thing to strive for, work or example smile

Wolfgang, I sure can stare at pictures of y'all's whips for a long time! 

Flemming, this one would not be as it is a single belly with a larger core (6 strands instead of 4), though a two belly 16 plait cow whip is virtually the same pattern of weight distribution as the stock whip I build, if you include the twisted taper fall.  The cow whip, of course, already has the twisted taper on the tip of the thong.

Mark, thank you very much.  You set a fine example of work, yourself...

Thanks for the explanation Rachel.

I get surprised every time you explain something too me, how many variations and techniques that are covered under the overlay

Nice Rachel! I love the brown with the wood.

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

Rachel, my greatest compliments to your work!
The shape of the entire handle, its color and the perfectly made thong all go together extremely well!

All the best

Ben, Ethan, thank you very much!

Flemming, you are very welcome, always!  There is always something new to learn.  I am always excited to see how much more of the universe (or details on whips!) We still have not yet even been able to imagine... It is so vast.  Always, there is more to learn.

Rachel, I love the grain of the wood in that handle.  Beautiful work, as always!

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