I think a loaded fall is almost a must for a shortish snake whip.

It's ok if you disagree with me.

Rachel, I realy like that little Snakewhip!
It looks fantastic and judging by the width of the diameter/taper, it's heavy for it's size which is very good for a small snakewhip - love it!

A cow whip that I made very early on, within the first 30 I think (it had an oak turned handle).  I believe it is 8’.
A 16 plait that I’ve replaced the fall on for the owner, and added a new handle from hickory that I had hand shaped awhile back.  Lonnie colored it a bit with the torch.

Rachel, this is a good example of how quality lasts.
It's probably nice to know that someone has used their whip long enough to wear out the fall.
Good job.

It's a very, very nice handle. I think it is absolutely incredible that the whip is in such good condition when the fall needs to be changed. It does not look worn at all. You have such a whip all your life smile

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

You're quite right, Flemming!  The thong scarcely looks worn at all.  A very well-made whip!  smile

Rachel, you're one of the very best!!!
