Old Australian stockwhip

This is a VERY old Australian stockwhip. Due to its age, it has several damages and is a collectible only. The 10ft thong starts 20plait and runs down to 6. The handle is only 12plait (unusual, normally the handle of a stockwhip has more strands than the thong). The handle has a steel-lined core. That was very dangerous for a whip user, as he might get speared if falling from his horse. Thanks to Michael Murphy for informations.
