Carbine

Here is whip number 87, a 5-foot, black kangaroo-hide whip with a Canarywood handle. The core is a 13-inch steel rod with 10 inches drilled back up into the 12-inch handle, The last three inches were used to attach the shot-loaded core covered by a cowhide bolster, a 4 plait belly, a second cowhide bolster, and an 8-plait overlay that is diamond plaited from handle to fall knot. The 30-inch latigo fall is attached with a traditional 9-strand fall hitch. There is also a decorative 8-strand back-braid in a gaucho pattern that extends a foot from the handle.
