Wood handle bullwhip by Mike Murphy (6ft)
Mike Murphy made this first-class bullwhip from brandy tan kangaroo leather with a Jarrah (an Australian hardwood) handle. The whip is 16plait with two plaited bellies, and still 8plait at the point. Note how fine the braid is at the last few inches! Perfectly balanced, no lead inside. The fall is whitehide (precision and durability is more important than color). BTW, this is my sixth whip from Mike, and will not be the last.
