This is a real whip, made from layers and layers of genuine leather, hand braided in an authentic method with a 12 strand outer layer (most whipmakers only do eight or four strands to cut cost). No part of this Indiana Jones bull whip is made by machine, it's all hand labor by skilled craftsmen. Indiana Jones Bullwhips of this kind typically cost a lot more - and by "a lot" I mean DOUBLE or TRIPLE this price. And what's more, you have to wait weeks or months for the whip to be made. We have Indiana Jones bullwhips in stock, ready to ship immediately.
You know you don't want to wear one of those cheap, junky Indiana Jones bullwhips you get at the costume store. They're all wrong. You're here because you want something better. Amaze you friends with a REAL bull whip. They'll want to hold it and admire the fine craftsmanship. And while you're at it, why don't you learn to crack it to really show it off?
If you want our best replica of the original Raiders of the Lost Ark bullwhip, this is it. They are ten feet in length, which is the size that Harrison Ford wore on his belt through almost all of the movie. Other lengths were used for specific stunts, but the whip on the belt was a ten-footer. Although the whips were natural pinkish-tan when they were new, the screen used whips had darkened with age and sun exposure to a dark reddish-tan color. Using our own sun-darkened whips as a reference, we have replicated the color perfectly so you don't have to wait years for your whip to darken. We have reproduced every detail.
But these are more than a prop replica, they are also real and usable whips. They are hand cut from specially tanned calf hide, which is a good and economical alternative to the expensive kangaroo hide of the originals. There are no shortcuts taken in the construction of these whips, such as rope or paper fillers in the core. These are solid leather - layers and layers of it tightly braided and well rolled.
DO NOT try to crack this before educating yourself on how to do it. There are lots of training resources on the web and in print, such as Robert Dante's book "Lets Get Cracking!" Consult them before you whiplash your face. Whipcracking is a fun skill and good recreation. Be safe! Please keep out of reach of reckless children! Eye protection is HIGHLY recommended when cracking Indiana Jones bullwhips. To keep your whip in good whipping shape please try our Pecard Leather Dressing. Sold Separately.

When I saw the new Raiders Whip listed just 2 days ago.... I was beyond thrilled because I had been wanting an new accurate whip for a while. Todd has always created quality accurate products, so I knew I could trust this Whip would be excellent.
THIS is the whip most Indy Fans REALLY need. Everything described about Todd's new Raiders whip, is exactly as advertised. ( FAST SHIPPING too). I've held / used a few more expensive whips over the years( like David Morgan) , and as great as they are, the price and quality of Todd's new Raiders whip wins hands down for me. With the money you save, you can easily purchase a few other key items for your Indy costume.
Lets be realistic.... even most big Indiana Jones fans are will not be cracking their whips on a day to day basis, and really don't need a more expensive Kangaroo alternative.
The look of the whip is Very Raiders, and as someone who wears Indy to events often, I know this new whip will age well and work great as a Useable / Prop for the accurate costume look. Can't wait to really break her in more and throw some fullers earth on for that dusty look.
I have only done a few small cracks in my apartment, but look forward to taking her outside this weekend. I will update my review after, but at this point, I have NO Doubt she will perform well.
Quality detailed products as Always Todd. Throughly appreciate you spending the time to offer such accurate props for the fan community. Thank you again, and again sir !
