Topic: Deconstructing a garbage whip
I bought this leather whip years ago at Callahan's for about 35 bucks when I first wanted to learn to crack a whip. I was bored last night and decided to take it apart to salvage the leather and whatever else I could get out of it. The construction of this whip was pretty hilarious and honestly kind of interesting considering it actually cracked decently (albeit with more effort that it should take).
Get ready for a long post with a ton of photos.
So this was about a 6 foot whip. One overlay, no internal bellies, and one of the weirdest cores I've ever seen. It started in 8 plait and went down to 4 plait about halfway down the thong. I had already taken the transition know off when I took the first photo.
Ultimately I'd say I got a good bang for my buck with this cheapo whip. I learned the very basics of whip cracking and I got some material to use for heel know foundations.
