PDF's on WhipMaking and Knot Tying
As some of you may know I am currently shooting a DVD tutorial, a large part of why is to do with the PDF tutorials below which I did some 4 or 5 years back. They were only ever meant to be a starter pattern, a pattern to get you going and get you thinking on how you could do it better, the DVD is different it will tell you exactly how commercial whip makers world wide do it, no holds barred nothing hidden, by the end of the tutorial you will have all the knowledge you need to build both a snake whip and a bull whip in a 16 and 12 plait.....
Over the years I have received hundreds of emails either saying thanks for posting them but more often than not asking questions which in turn leads to many many hours answering, I know of 6 guys and one lady that now operate small businesses who wouldn't have been able to do so without the assistance of them in some way, some small, some large, so all in all I am quite proud of them.
Human nature being what it is they have also produced a percentage of idiots, guys that have built one or two whips then opened a web site, self confidence is a great thing but at just a few whips your kidding yourself and much more importantly your ripping people off, other guys running round telling everyone that will listen that Tony from EssentiaWhips taught me how to make whips, If you ever bought a whip off someone who said this to you they lied to you. You'll never get past that I guess.....
Anyway below are the originals, feel free to download them and use them, but if you have any questions then please buy the DVD all is answered there...
