Knot Styles
Butt KnotThe knot at the base of the handle is the "butt knot" and the smaller knot on down the the thong of a bullwhip is the "transition knot."  Wristloop extending from the butt knot is optional, and available braided with different numbers of strands.  Click on the icon for a few of the knot designs available. 

Plait Count & Patterns
                                                        ExampleWe've braided whips with anywhere from 4 strands to 48.  Click the icon to go to the photo gallery where you can see many whips with different plait counts, beautiful one, two or three tone patterns, and even braided-in initials.  Get creative here, or let us help you to get creative - there are literally thousands of different patterns and pattern combinations you could have braided into you whip!

                                                      FallsWe have made whips with uniquely colored falls (hand-dyed the same way we do our black falls).  We have also made many whips (flogs actually) with multiple falls, braided multiple falls, and multiple falls with unique tips.  If you can dream it up, we can make it happen.  All you have to do is ask.

                                                        IconYour whip may be braided in one color, two colors, even three colors or more.  Click on the icon for examples of the variety of colors we braid with.  Be sure to contact us before ordering though, because not all colors are always available - we are very picky about making sure the leather we choose to use is nothing but the best quality.

Can't find exactly what you're looking for on our other whip pages?  Searching for someone to execute your unique and original braided leather idea?  Look no further.  MidWestWhips' whipmakers have the leatherworking experience to make your design a reality. 

To the left are just a few of the different parts of a whip that are most commonly customized, but the options for customization are really practically limitless.  Featured below is a photo of one of our favorite examples of our customers' ingenuity and creativity in creating a custom whip design: the appropriately named Stokes Katana Whip.  With this customer's permission, this unique and original design by MidWestWhips has become a part of our Signature Series Whips.  We can't wait to hear your ideas too!
