This is a Combat Bull that is really special. The pattern has 2 colors on one side and 4 colors on the other side. The one white strand is a single diamond down the full length of the whip. That won't mean a lot to most of you... but trust me, this was the most involved pattern I have ever done. I learned a lot building this whip and have some new ideas that I want to try because of it.
John's idea was to use the desert rattle snake for inspiration but other than that let me have creative freedom. It was really fun and really challenging at the same time.
The Bodlak Combat whip is kind of a crazy animal with its curved handle. It does things that a normal whip won't and refuses to play by the old rules. Mike had a dream of building a Spiky Bodlak and after some thought and a couple of different handles... here it is! I think it turned out great.
Here we have a beautiful black combat bull. It's new home will be in Canada. One special thing about this whip is the stone on the end is a Picasso jasper that is native to Utah. It looks like a natural yin/yang symbol. I thought it was so cool and had to go on a whip the second I saw it.
I love love love doing girly whips! This pink and burgundy 8 footer is so beautiful and bad a$$! I test cracked it way longer than I had to. These represent the opposite ends of the scale of my whips. One is the lightest and quickest that I make and the other is one of the heavier whips that I make. Both beautiful. I hope Rose Anne has so much fun with them.
