This whip has the same curve as the original Bodlak whip but with a totally different flavor. It is 4 1/2 foot, 12 plait with a heavy fall. The handle was made by Randal. It has wood, antler, a brass grommet and steel ball barrings. My husband said that if Conan the barbarian had a whip, it would look just like this one.
Randal wanted 4 different colors on his whip and for the thong to fade from dark to light. I decided that to keep the feel of the the handle I would make the plaiting very organic and random. I loved doing something different than a serpent design.
Hopefully Randal will let me use some video of him working with the curved handled whips because he is Amazing to watch. (I'll keep you posted on that)
