    I put a little 550 cord on my axe for cushioning mis-hits and for comfort on doing detail carving type work, and whipped the ends of the various cordage projects:

    Did my two strand twist and whipped the end with some 6/0 fly tying thread. No whip finishing tool was used.

    I have whip finished my 3 cord braid and my scout walking stick.
    I did my walking stick with 2 strands. They are done as 2 separate wraps, one next to the other. I am pleased with the way the walking stick came out. it reminds me of a copper head...

    My submission for whipping. This is a great method for wraping tools, I'm very grateful for this lesson; I've been doing this wrong for years!

    Hello all,

    For my submission I have 550 cord whipped with dental floss and a fish wacker whipped with jute.

    Thank you,

    Whipped my hatchet with jute twine to give it some protection.

    I used a whipping to complete my two strand twist of man-made cordage (paracord) as well as just some random whipping because I felt like it. They're shown finished and unfinished. For the tool, I whipped the front brake and clutch levers on one of my motorcycles. If that isn't "bushcrafty" enough, I also added a whipped handle on my daughters hiking stick (yucca stalk).

    Here’s my submission, hopefully the axe handle will count it’s not quite “whipped” but it is wrapped. I’ll whip another tool if not. E0B3B445-17C7-49A0-80D5-2609B819ED39.jpeg 56278FF4-C194-4703-B6B9-AA191950C9E0.jpeg

    Here is a plain whipping 'axe mask' for my tomohawk. I did it more for a more comfortable grip on finer tasks.

    And a needle and palm whipping on a 3/8" jute rope.

    Have you tried putting any load on the eye? With a 3 strand cord, you could splice the eye. With the 2 strand twist, a seizing would be much better than the whipping. Its similar to lashing poles.. don't skip the frap!

    I haven't put a heavy load on it yet. I prefer the spliced eye for sure!

    IMG_1396.JPG I whipped the handle on my Ulu blade that I attached to a hammer handle. I don't have a name for this tool yet, but it de-limbs branches like a machette.

    Typical of me to start a class somewhere in the middle of the syllabus, but this was the skill that appealed to me for practice yesterday.

    First, the ever so frugal small axe, the X70 from Fiskars, improved with a wrap of paracord. In cold weather, the plastic of the handle slipped too often in my gloved hand.

    Second, a bit of 2 strand twisted 10/4 linen rug warp with whipped loops on each end in 16/2 line linen, shown holding my house key to my belt. Considering all the steps to convert flax to linen, I consider this a man-made material. Flax, right from the field, is a brittle twig that will not give up its fibers willingly. Linen does not lose tensile strength when wet. A coating of beeswax improves its abrasion resistance. Perfectly suitable for a key fob, but not much else in this weight.

    (My ferro rod didn’t need a new lanyard. The one that came with it is good enough for now.)

    Whipped the end and bite of the 2 strand twist ridge line. For tools I did a hammer handle and an Eastwing camp axe.
