Arabian whip (different style)
Here comes a totally different style of an Arabian bullwhip. It does not have the specially braided transition zone like usual "Arabians", but the thong is fastened directly to a hardwood handle. The last 2/3 ft of the 12ft 8plait thong are detachable. The connection is similar to the keeper connection of a stockwhip. The actual configuration is for hitting. But after replacement of the point by fall and popper, this whip would be crackable. As usual, the leather is not the best (dry, lacquered goatskin).
