Introduction: Bullwhip With Built in Survival Kit
This Bull whip's handle has a pvc base, allowing it to hold items inside it. For mine I put matches, striker, wire, duck tape, a pen, a small saw, fishing kit and a knife.
Step 1: Gather all your supplies: Survival items to put into the handle (personal choice); Marble, scissors, ruler, BB's, lighter, hack saw, file, pliers, para cord needle, 1/2 " PVC pipe [about 12 inches long - cut to length and filed down), para cord ( I used 4 different colors, about 15 feet of each color), hot glue gun, glue and duck tape.
Step 2: Prepare Monkey fist (using the marble and 10 feet of cord)
Step 3: Attached Monkey fist to PVC by using hot glue or tape. Monkey fist is the cap of the PVC Survival kit
Step 4: Attach 4 more strands to the PVC pipe about 6 feet long of each.
Step 5: The knots I used for the grip was a long turks head, and for decoration I also tied two smaller turks heads on in the places where different sections meet.
The actual whip part is divided into 3 different sections,
Step 6: The first section is made from 6 strand half round braid, about 3 feet long, finished.
Step 7: At the end of the 1st section, cut 2 strands, whip the ends and continue braiding, hiding the ends inside the whip.
Step 8: The second section I used a 4 strand round braid, about 18 inches, finished. Leave about 6 inches of para cord on the end.
Step 9: Prepare 3 rd section of the whip. I used A single strand of para cord (Orange) (24" long).
Step 10: stuff 15 (+ or-) BB's into one end of the cording. The BB end is now ready to be breaded into the end of Section 2. (Step 8)
Step 11: Finish Section 2 with an overhand knot and whip ends.
Step 12: The very end of the whip is left frayed.
The whip works perfectly well and has a pretty substantial crack.
