The bullwhip is a single-tailed whip, usually made of braided leather, which was originally used as a stockman’s tool for working with livestock.

Bullwhips are agricultural tools, traditionally used to control livestock in open country. A bullwhip's length, flexibility, and tapered design allows it to be thrown in such a way that, toward the end of the throw, part of the whip exceeds the speed of sound—thereby creating a small sonic boom.

A bullwhip consists of a handle section, a thong, a fall, and a cracker. The main portion of the bullwhip's length is made up of a braided body or thong. Made of many strips of leather, the number of braids or plaits is an important factor in the construction of the whip. Unlike in the stock whip, the thong connects in line with the handle (rather than with a joint), or sometimes completely covers the handle. The handle is usually short, being between 8 and 12 inches long

A fall is a single piece of leather between 10 and 30 inches in length which needs to be replaced as it wears, to do this you will require a fid tool. It was traditionally made to be replaceable and to take the wear and tear of dragging on the ground when on horse back as it is much easier to replace a solid piece of leather than to re-plait the whip. Tied to the end of the flexible fall, is an even more flexible piece of string or nylon cord or wire called the cracker. The cracker functions to disperse the sound so it can be heard more easily, these do wear out under the stress and will need to be replaced. Cracking a whip causes wear to the cracker, and well used whips frequently require new crackers. Please note the colour of your whip may vary from the picture.
