Aussie Whip Maker – Kangaroo Hide

Kangaroo Hide

Kangaroo hide is light weight and has super strength. This is why kangaroo hide is  known world wide as the best choice for the multi strand 8 and 12 plaited whips. My kangaroo hide bullwhips and stock whips are all custom built hand crafted to fit you and your needs; custom made to suit your hand size, your body weight, your height, if right or left handed and is also loaded and balanced to suit the type of usage you specify.

Kangaroo Hide for its weight is the strongest leather in the world. Its lightweight and strength is ideal for whips. A whip is like a chain, the more links a chain has the more fluidly it will move, therefore the more strands that a whip has the more fluidly it will respond. More time is taken when plaiting with multi strands, therefore they are the more expensive whips.

Kangaroo hide, because of its strength, is the most suitable leather for multi strands. Australia’s whips are truly the best in the world. This is not necessarily due to the fact that we have some of the best whip makers in the world, but also because we have the best leather for whips kangaroo hide. Indeed Australia is known as the great unfenced country with cattle stations in the hundreds of thousands of acres  the size of some small countries where cattle men and women use whips daily.

Colour selection for kangaroo hide or you can select any two-tone combination.

Please add $30 if in two tone (takes a little longer to build).

Kangaroo Hide Bullwhips

12P_KH_BullwhipThese loaded and balanced bullwhips are traditionally the most common whip used in America and are also used by stockmen here in Australia. Bull Whips are preferred by many for accuracy and target whips. The following is our loaded and balanced Kangaroo hide Bull whip selection.

Available in:

4 foot x 8 plait Bull Whip – very fast action bullwhip.

5 foot x 8 plait Bull Whip – still quite a fast action whip, recommended for quicker routines.

6 foot x 8 plait Bull Whip – a nice flowing Bullwhip that can be used for the majority of whip cracking routines.

6, 7, 8, 9,10, and 12 foot x 12 plait Bullwhips – These are the top of the range Bull Whips in terms of number of strands, 12 strands create a well balanced  fluid motion whip. Your usage will determine which length to select, if from the saddle or from foot yard work or entertainers and the competitive whip crackers or for hobby and martial arts  All the specified diverse usage determines which whip to select. The optimum length in a bull whip is 8 feet, giving an overall length of 10 feet 6 inches, including the fall add to this the length of your arm to determine overall reach. This is also the most requested length being well known as the great all- rounder indeed the competion standard length .

Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips

whip6_MedKangaroo Hide loaded and balanced Stock Whips – These are the high quality world class whips, kangaroo hide being the best leather and loaded and balanced referring to the weight in the belly and the appropriate weighted handle. In Australian whip cracking competitions run by the Australian Whip Crackers and Plaiters Association only Stock Whips can be used. This is due to it being the traditional Australian whip indeed the first innovation in Australia’s history.

A stock as in rifle{handle} was put on a whip, STOCK with WHIP became the stock whip  and became an  Australian  legend  and was featured first at  the Sydney Olympic Games opening ceremony.

Kangaroo hide Stock Whips Available in:

kangaroo-stockwhip-1
4,5,and 6
foot by 4 plait kangaroo hide stock whip

Being a wide cut 4 strands, these whips are very strong being ideal for tough work, and are not as expensive as the multi plait kangaroo hide whips.

whip3_Med5 foot x 8 plait Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips – This is my preference in whip lengths for most routines. Get a pair of these whips and you will amaze yourself with what you can do!!

6 foot x 8 plait Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips – Great whips for a more flowing style. These are popular whips for stockmen who want a nice whip to work with. A great whip for flowing routines. For Australian whip cracking competitions run by the Australian Whip Crackers and Plaiters Association this is the minimum length required for the accuracy component.

7 and 8 foot x 8 plait Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips – These whips are preferred by stockmen who need a longer whip for greater reach from the saddle or for tall strong people who want to make a loud noise!

6, 7 and 8 foot x 12 plait Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips – These are the top of the line whips in terms of the number of strands. Any more strands than this and the whip is not considered a whip to take to work, as the strands need to be cut to fine and thin.

All the above stock whips come with a loaded and balanced full plait kangaroo hide handle with the same number of strands as the whip, 8 or 12.

Do you remember when things were hand made and great pride was taken to produce quality items? I have this pride and very much enjoy making whips.
