We are proud to offer you whips by extremely talented whip braiders working very hard to keep the tradition of whip plaiting alive in America. making Signal, Snake Bull Whips, Cats and Quirts as well as many styles of novelty whips. Also they are made out of a wide variety of leather such as Roo, cow horse, or nylon just to name a few.
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.
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 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.
