Now you can decide and build your own single tail whip to your own exact specifications. All whips on this page are constructed from K1-Whip Grade Kangaroo Leather Imported from Australia. The plait count on these whips are 16 strands. The leather is of the finest grade available. Here is a description of all the choices available to you.
Primary Color Choices:
These colors are all photographed with Natural Kangaroo hide for comparison. They are to give you an idea of the color ranges. We have also added a few of the accent colors as a main color choice to give you more available combinations. Colors will differ slightly from dye lot to dye lot. There may also be distortion of color on your own screens. These are meant as a guide only.
Secondary Color Option:
Introducing a second color into a single tail whip is fairly easy. I have several unusual factory dyed hide colors available. I also have a fair stock of natural hides which are perfect for dyeing. You do not have to choose a second color - you can select "No Color" for the second choice to leave your whip a solid color.
I will upload more photos of the color options when I have photographed them. Typically the second color will cost you $15.00 for standard colors, $25.00 for special order colors like roan, white, oxblood, purple, dark red, timber brown etc.
There are several choices available. Have a close look at the product pictures and see if any of the patterns suit you. You can also leave the choice up to the Whip Maker.
Here we have pictures of the Full 5 strand Wrist Strap, and the Utility Strap. A photograph of the heel knot without a strap will be posted when I have one. There is no extra cost for the Utility Strap or no strap option. It is an extra $10.00 for the full five strand wrist strap.
This final choice gives you the option of your personal choice of length. When I measure a whips length I start at the top of the button and go to the end of the loop end or the end of the leather if it is a signal style whip. Straps and crackers are not included in the measurements. Longer single tail whips require more skill to throw. Standard length is 36 inches. Add $10 dollars for each 6 inches of whip length. (Crackers and Straps are not included in measuring the whip length)
All of our signal whips come with a loop end so that you can easily replace the cracker. Each whip is shipped with a few extra crackers. If you require something different please email the whipmaker.
We are currently taking 8 to 10 weeks to create custom orders. During this time the Whipmaker will stay in touch with you and keep you informed as to the progress of your whips. You will be notified as soon as the order is ready, sent photographs of your order for your approval before it is shipped. All orders are shipped Canada Parcel post with a tracking number and insurance. We have a flat rate shipping fee to Canada and the US of 17.50. Other countries please contact the whipmaker.
