Re: Bullwhips

I went to the "Art Of Whips" on Etsy and ordered a 10-foot black bullwhip (+ an 18" fall) for $89.32 (+ $25.52 shipping from Great Britain) This come to a total of $114.84 shipped to my door. I haven't had a decent blacksnake bullwhip in my hands since my daddy died in 1975. This should be a lot of...

This will never rot or fray.
Another cool acquisition.

Re: Fishtailpicklock

I arrived in Tijuana on the morning of August 20th and left at 1:10 am August 26th. (The cartel was nowhere to be seen. The food and sightseeing were truly awe-inspiring). I never had a better time! 8) :mrgreen:

Re: Bullwhips

What people fail to understand is that bullwhips can actually serve on the city streets being seen as a defensive tool rather than an offensive weapon. I carried my combat cane aboard both Alaska Airlines flights without any real trouble. (Tell me they're going to deny an old Navy veteran his cane w...

Re: Bullwhips

It is strange about bullwhips. A fantastic example manufactured from Kangaroo hide can run as high as $315.00-$400.00 USD. The great part about them is that they "wear like iron" and can be used for herding/driving cattle, "persuading" mules/donkeys and/or keeping other animals at bay.

Re: Bullwhips

....you can carry a whip where you can't carry a gun or a knife)... Not sure the TSA would go for this Indiana Jones approach. In any case, please let us see that this Brit Whip looks like :D I returned home (on Alaska Airlines) with an 8' bullwhip coiled up in my carry-on luggage. There wasn't any...

Bullwhips

I'm looking into a finely crafted 12 plait "blacksnake" bullwhip. A nice bullwhip can be used for entertainment, self-defense, and herding animals. (Father once had a 10' "blacksnake". I wish that I still had that piece of braided leather).

Does anyone else enjoy these ranching tools?

I see you didn't buy any knives BUT what did you see for sale knife wise? Thanks!
I saw several Chinese "Milano" autos and a few manuals. I even saw an inexpensive Chinese "ballpoint pen" OTF for sale (it was being sold for $8.00 USD). I liked them, but it wan't worth losing them at the airport.

Re: My 5 1/2 day stay in Tijuana

I went to the Cultural Center of Tijuana (their museum) and for 27 pesos it was well worth the money spent. My second visit to the Tijuana Wax Museum was only $1.50 USD. Walking the streets of Tijuana, I passed the old 'Calle Ocho' (8th Street Jail) site. It has since been turned into a public park ...

Re: My 5 1/2 day stay in Tijuana

No, but I did bring back an 8-foot blacksnake whip I bought for $25.00. I also bought two pairs of good Mexican shoes for $20.00 each at a Tijuana Zapataria (shoe store). I brought back two .925 Sterling Silver rings at $18.00 and $25.00 each and a pair of Huarache sandals for my roommate's son for ...

My 5 1/2 day stay in Tijuana

I have been home since the afternoon of the 26th. My computer (or rather this site) has repeatedly dumped my replies about my trip to Tijuana, Rosarito, and Puerto Nuevo. Perhaps I can write about it in installments. :roll:
