Cowpoke II

Cowpoke II is a copy (more or less) of a whip I made last year. A feller in the Big Bend area of Texas saw the post and asked if I could make another, so here it is. The entire time I was working on it it has been dry as a bone and over 100 degrees here in the Texas Panhandle, so it should already be acclimated to the climate down there. It’s an 8′ cow whip in chocolate brown with a 14″ bocote handle, 20″ fall, and a weighted twisted-tapered core. The last foot of the overlay is also a twisted-taper and the ends of each of the 2 bellies are twisted into the core or belly below it as well.  The cracker is 10″ long and is twisted of B55 bowstring material. The whip is waxed. Whip # 58.
