Robert Phan: +NicksWhipShop Does the BBs have to be metal BBs or can I use some plastic
Phillips Knotwork: Thanks a ton for these tutorials, Nick. I just finished waxing my first
whip (I've made a couple in the past using your tutorials) complete with
transition and heel knot. I can't say how much I really do appreciate
what you've done for a lot of us knotworkers with your videos.
bat manley: hey mr nick, have you ever tried putting heat to the core near the handle
after loading it? not much heat but just enough to stiffen up the core!
just curious I am new to whip building and have never made one from
paracord yet and thought that maybe that may be more lasting than the tape?
but anyway you made a great looking and sounding whip i cant wait to build
mine! your an excellent instructor as well! thanks so much!!!
Alex Cooney: Hey Nick, thanks for your tutorial, I spent 8 hours today making my very
first whip. Your instruction were great! Very easy to follow.
I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many. :)
Miguel Phillips: Can you write down all of the materials I need to make the whip
Tiffany Hines: Do you make get back whips for motorcycles? I've been searching YouTube and
get find a tutorial.
JFireGold Gaming: Is there a way to shot load a whip quicker? This is Jacob again
Lefty Max: Hey nick I have a question
What happens if on the 12 strand in stead of going under 3 over 3 u go over
under over under on both sides???
Kyle Ettinger: +NicksWhipShop I'm working on my first whip. I'm complete with my two ten
foot lengths for my first belly. But its only covers my 10.5 inch handle,
and maybe another 5 inches. This seems way to short of coverage compared to
yours in the video. any advice before i do my second belly?
Josh Garneau: Hey, Nick! You did a great job with this video - everything was super clear
and easy to follow along with. I made my first whip, and it came out
perfectly. It's great to see the patterns in the layers shift as the cords
drop out! They just look really neat. I'm still figuring out how to do this
whole whip cracking thing (it's why I wanted to make one in the first
place), but once I've got that down, I'll post a video response showing the
whip itself. Thanks again!
sdmartens99: what kind of paracord did you use for shot loading?
William Sellers: Nick very helpful bro your awesome thank you this going to help a
MachineFight: i used 24 feet for my longest strands and i got about 45 cm of uncovered
core left :/
Casey Rabbit: Hey Nick! :)
I'm actually using your video to work on an 8 foot bullwhip! ^.^ I
converted your measurements to account for the size differences and so far
everything has worked out wonderfully. But I was hoping I could double
check with you about something just to be certain I don't make a mistake
The 4 feet of paracord used for a fall at the end of a 6 foot
bullwhip...should I use 5 or 6 feet instead for the fall of an 8 foot
bullwhip or should I stick with 4 feet for the fall?
Thank you so much for posting this video by the way. :) You're awesome and
making this whip is basically my birthday and Christmas present to myself.
Thank you for giving me all the tricks I need to pull this off. :) Happy
holidays by the way! ^.^
peacefuljeffrey: Even apart from watching this to learn how to make a whip, this video is
entertaining because Nick is so personable, approachable, and charismatic
on screen. Seems like just a really cool and easygoing guy.
Eventually I'm gonna watch all the way through and make myself a bullwhip!
James SPIERS: Hi Nick, Do you have a formulae for working out the lengths of cord to cut
for different length whips, both for the first and second plaiding For
example you will use more cord in a 12ft whip than a 6ft one and when it
comes to the plaiding using different lengths of cord these will be
different too. Great video, by the way!!!!!!
Alberto Petrecca: Hey Nick, I watched your video and it talked about how to make a 6ft whip,
but what about a 10ft whip ? What are the measurements for all the cores
and stuff ? Thanks.
AustinofEarth: In this video; Jon Snow shows you how to make a neat whip!
RedHedS7epChild... XBOX: Hey, I just found about 100 ft of para cord and decided to see what I could
make, I think this video is amazing, so now I just need to get more para
cord. Also about how long does it take to make a full whip, obviously it
would take me longer but I'm wondering just so I have an idea. Definitely
going to sub. And how do you not have more subs?
Joshua Bernabe: Hey nick! I recently made a whip based off this video (I rushed it....
Whoops.. But still turned out good!) and have been thinking about making
another 6ft and an 8ft bullwhip. So my question is, would it be ok to
shotload the entire core? I didn't like going from a round core to a flat
one. I've gotta figure out the dimensions for the 8ft whip, I'm thinking
about 3 bellies, shot loaded, and a 16 plait, or higher, overlay (going big
on this one). Thanks again! Love the tutorials!!
Steven42192: Hey nick great video I tried it and my overlay only came out to like 4 feet
can you tell me what I did wrong and can you put the measurements up on how
to make an 8 ft whip thanks again for the great tutorial
Milferd Jones: Does anyone know what kind of torch that is?
Yoshi Maroscher: Hi Nick!
I loved this tutorial! I have been really inspired and am making all sorts
of toys using paracord to do the handles. I am excited to try my hand at
whip making too! I am having trouble finding a video tutorial on making a
lump knot or globe knot for the end of the handle. Is there any way you
could post one? I would be eternally grateful!
nick denton: Hey nick, nice name you got there ;) great video, easy to follow. I made a
few whips as a kid but nothing fancy at all and I found one the other week
and decided to properly make one from what I have at home. I found some
inch nylon rope and decided that's probably the best thing on hand. Instead
of untwisting the rope and making a whip from the strands I had to use
three strands together to make up enough thickness. Instead of putting the
three strands together I decided to plat them together to make a flat rope
for whip making. Holy crap it took forever, platting about 270 ft of small
rope strands and then making a whip out of it. What a beauty though, well
worth the time.
Braden Meade: Could you tell me what torch/lighter you're using around the 1 hour 6
minute mark? Thanks in advance!
Eduard Mocanu: Would it be ok to use Air Rifle pellets instead of the .177 caliber? Also I
noticed that in the video there are 2 bellies and one over lay but they are
thinner than the one at your store? Would it be the same quality as one
with more plats?
686BrAaiNS686: +NicksWhipShop Hey Nick. Great videos, really helpful thanks! I just
finished my snakewhip last night. Going to get the supplies together to
make this bullwhip now, but with a Turks head on the handle. I didn't have
enough cord left (or the needle) to do it on the snakewhip.
Thanks again man, you rock!
Emothice: Have you ever considered using some kind of spring to reinforce the initial
transition point from handle to core? Maybe a modified doorstop spring or
something off an old screen door with extra electrical tape filler between
the core and the spring.
I'm no whip maker, I'm sure its completely unnecessary. Just a stray
thought I had.
Jared Procko: Can you use wood for the handle or does it have to be metal
Syr Chrys: I am glad that I came across your video on pintrest. The whip you made is
beautiful! I wanna get the materials to make one myself. I collect whips
and I am wanting to make my own. Do you make floggers? I am about to check
out your website. Thank you for such an amazing demo!
Shania LeBlanc: could you write in the description the lengths or rope we will need and the
- rod 1/3"
- 2 100 pack of bbs
2 roles of electrical tape
Aleksandar Djordjevic: Great video. Thank's for the effort.
Peter Smedley: Could you give me the link to where you got the threading needle please?
I've ordered two so far and one was too small to fit the paraord, the other
to big to fit inside the cord. Thanks!
Sxeirthanu: Would electrical cord inside the gutted rope instead of bb's work?
Михаил Папченков: I do not know much English, but I want to say thank you for the manual! :-)
P.S. Maybe I'm going to translate and this video on Russian ...:-)
K Lewis: How many feet of paracord
jacob kendall: How much do yours cost I've been wanting one forever
Richard Mullan: What diameter are those BB pellets? And what are they made from?
Your videos are awesome though, I'm going to give this a try. Starting
jedi666kn8: Hi Nick, I can't seem to find 1/4 inch cord anymore. My last batch has ran
out. Were u sourcing yours at the moment or are u using an alternative
thatasiankid45: Hey, Nick! Would substituting the bb's for a ball chain work? They don't
sell bb's here in Australia.
David Solo: Must make one myself. You made that look really easy. Thanks.
DL Spamalot: What do you do with the inner cords?
John T: Hi Nick, great video, How long would the metal rod be for an 8 inch handle
like the ones in the Indiana Jones movies? Thanks.
Sahara Gomez: Seriously thinking about doing one of this... Loved the video, you make it
sooo easy to watch, by the way you look like John Snow of Game of
Thrones... Thank you for sharing your art
asdfergerful: I'm just watching the video, how many hours does this take?
Damian Hileman: Can u make a tutorial on how to make a kangaroo hide bullwhip?
Shawn Strathe: how long were the indiana jones bullwhip handles
james dean: By far the best video on making a bullwhip on You Tube.
Thank you for posting this. I will be starting mine tomorrow.
bobsauce100: If I wanted to make this a two-tone whip, say...black and white, how would
I do that?
wouter broer: Maybe its a weird question but what are BB's?
