“Blake makes nice whips that work as good as the look.” – Adam Winrich
As a child, like so many others, I fell in love with the Indiana Jones films and catwoman in Batman Returns. So when i was 10 years old I saved up and bought my first whip from a catalog and learned to crack a whip. It wasn’t until many years later after having gone to art school at the Savannah College of Art and Design and trying to pursue a career as an artist that I stumbled upon my childhood passion and decided, screw art! I am going to learn how to make whips.
My favorite part of my job is bringing that child like smile to peoples faces when they get their custom made whip. Every time I make one I obsess over the details, sometimes redoing things several times until it’s right. I think of them not as just a whip but a living thing that comes to life in the hands of its user.
I make my whips with the same techniques that the old masters used to ensure heirloom quality. All my whips are made from the finest leathers and materials. I guarantee my whips will last the rest of your life. If they break I will repair them free of charge.
How to order
Take a look at my price guide. Additional customizations can be discussed via email on the contact page. It may take as long as 6 months to a year for you to get your whip or whips after ordering. Once you’ve decided to order I will ask for a $100usd deposit via check or PayPal and your name will go on the list. Then when I’m ready to make your whip or whips I will ask for the remaining amount owed. Please stick to the parameters and types of whips I offer. I do not make signal tails, floggers, quirts, crops, or any other dressage whips. If you want a very fancy whip email me to discuss the cost. I will ship internationally for a 30$ extra charge. Domestic shipping is free on orders over $350. All whips come with a spare fall, 5 extra crackers and some leather conditioner. Orders over $350 come with a free whip bag!
