I'm on a roll tonight I guess. Wanted to see what that stock whip would look like with a transition knot and i certainly need practice so I made a foundation and did anither Turks knot to finish it.

Glady Ron! Most likely will be next week because I still need to give it a nice warm bath in wax and am traveling all week.

Re: Collins whips/making of

Just finished this whip tonight. 18 plait 3ft snake whip. Definitely the most colorful one I've made. It's going to be a Christmas present for my sister. Her husband will get one too, so that one is next. Overall, I'm happy with it, especially the seam which stayed pretty straight. Also, first time with twisted taper fall. I test cracked it and was really impressed, I believe the fall helped alot on this short whip. Just needs wax which will tighten it up lol

I've included the 2 bellies also.
