Si Davey

Si Davey's whips are plaited in the finest quality kangaroo hide using the traditional Australian two-whips-in-one technique. Hand-plaited in a style that dates back to the original character of the Australian bush.  Email Si at

Following is a brief description of the two different style whips we have in stock...of course custom orders are ALWAYS an option.  Email us for more information on custom whips.

Signal Whips ...

These "single-tails" as they are commonly known were originally developed for sled dog racers and are now appreciated by those who need a compact, accurate and efficacious whip for indoor use.  The traditional design employs a cracker plaited into the end of the whip.

Snake Whips

Snake whips are dynamically similar to bullwhips and are used in much the same way, the most obvious difference being the lack of any stiffening in the handle. Instead the whip is loaded with lead shot in the butt end of the thong, how much depending on the type and size of the whip. The effect is equivalent to that of a much thicker bullwhip but with full flexibility - ideal if compact dimensions are required. Snakes crack louder and hit harder than bullwhips.
