Jyri, even when there are no lanterns anywhere near, in total darkness?! wink
But you have a point there, I actually thought „How is Jyri doing this with a night 6 months long?!“ big_smile

Yesterday I spotted an albino dalmatian.
It was the least I could do for him.

Re: My whips this far

Now that's the way to make a stock whip.
The colors really match together and the taper of the handle is super.
This one screams.... " CRACK ME!"

Re: My whips this far

Excellent work, Jyri, I especially like the stockwhip. How long is that handle?

Diagonally parked in a parallel universe.

Re: My whips this far

Thanks! Video is uploading.

Number 29 is quite heavy  and feels just like 3 belly whip.  It rolls out nicely but the backside is pretty stiff.

27 and 28 are pretty similar with relatively short transition.

The stockwhip works fine but it is not a fast one,  at least it does't feel like one.

First one is the blue wit 550 and 275, then the one with grey cord, stock and the heavy one

Splendid, Jyri!  Really nice!

Re: My whips this far

Wow Jyri, those are some excellent whips.

About number 29, it seems like one color is actually very narrow near the transition knot, how did you manage that effect?

Re: My whips this far

Thank you!

Sven i used 550 cord and 275 cord.

Re: My whips this far

Did the stockwhip get the balance you wanted ? and does it feel like a light weighted whip ?

Today is a good day

Re: My whips this far

Flemming i have to do some testing still. The handle did take on some weight in wax. Tomorrow i know more. I'll post more then.

Re: My whips this far

Jyri, they are beautiful whips. How do you not have snow?!?

Don't panic...

Re: My whips this far

Scott we haven't have any snow all winter exept for few days here and there. It has rained water more than enough tough. They are making somekind of record for snow up north.

Re: My whips this far
