A very generous friend of mine gave me a whip as a Christmas gift this year. The whip was made by James Barnwell of Luscus Whip Works.
It is a 5’4″ nylon bullwhip with a 12″ handle. I don’t know exactly what is inside the whip, but similar whips at his Etsy shop have shot-loaded cores and 2 bellies. The whip is very well made, has no gaps or crossed strands in the plaiting, and has a very solid feel. It cracks easily.
