Aussie whips are handcrafted from only the highest quality Australian kangaroo and red cow hides.
The Making of a Stock Whip by Aussie Whip Maker
All our whips are fully guaranteed (leather and workmanship).
The whips fall well and are very tightly plaited with even tension.
Being very aware of what is available in the marketplace, I have no hesitation in saying our whips are the best quality product available and provide excellent value for money.
Making a Whip
Grinding the spring steel reinforced cane handle to shape, for a full plait handle. All whips six to sixteen plait, have a balanced handle (balanced against the weight in the thong). A Full plait handle being complete. Measuring the leather for length and taper, which is absolutely essential for a well-balanced whip. Each Strand is painstakingly hand-cut with taper and a beveled edge. The hide must be greased and stretched fully before plaiting. A twelve plait Roo-Hide whip ready for plaiting. Firm and even tension is required when plaiting ensuring that the whip will fall straight and true. A 12 plait Roo-Whip showing full leather bellies. More whips going out to customers.
