Bullwhip grip change method

Today I received a question in an email about  how I made the bullwhips with the grip portion of the handle in a different color than the thong as seen on the Young Indy style bullwhips and on many of the 12 plait bullwhips I have posted on my website.Young Indy

I agreed to help out and took a few snap shots of the process on a 12 plait bullwhip I was working on at the time. I’m posting them here to maybe help others who wonder what to do. This is probably not the only way, or even the best way, but it’s my way and it has worked for me so far.

From here, I just build my transition knot foundation as normal and cover it with a turkshead knot.

That’s all there is to it!

    Mr. Kelly, I am an admirer of your work. If you don’t mind I would like to ask a question. What keeps the whip from separating from the handle on the Young Indy whip when you crack the whip?
