Step 16: Making the cracker
The last thing we will need to make things fully functional is the cracker.
It's the part of the whip that makes the actual noise.
This is a throw away part of your whip as it will wear with use.
When it becomes to damaged, just untie it,trash it and make a new one .
To make it :
- Take an arm length piece of your string
- Fold it in half, then twist the two strands together as you did when making the guts.
- Tie both strands in an overhand knot a few cm from the end
- Fray the ends
Then tie it to the fall as pictured.
