The traditional series represents the ideal all round choice for those seeking a whip that is made with the more well known method of plaiting whips where the main method is the use of plaited bellies and an overlay. Traditional Bullwhips are plaited over a spring steel core with two plaited bellies, the first of which is 8 plait and the second is 12 plait. The traditional snake whips are plaited with 3 bellies over a narrow lightly weighted core, 4 plait, 8 plait and 12 plait.
The bellies of both types are bound with Dacron to reinforce the handle area and increase control. All 16 plait options for both the bullwhip and the snake whips are completed with a twisted nylon fall as standard, with a cracker loop at the tip. The 32 plait snake whips are completed with a 32 plait tactical cord overlay. These options can be customized with other fall options of your choice.
The handle pommel is lead weighted and finished with a 9x8 pineapple interweave knot and a convenient miniature loop for easy storage and the bullwhips are decorated with a 7x6 pineapple knot at the handle transition. The whip is waxed in paraffin to protect the finish. Each whip is fitted with a cracker which is suited to its type and length.
The length of the whip is measured from the pommel to the area where the fall begins, it does not include the fall or cracker.
