The Aussie StockWhip

12 + Plait Kangaroo Hide Stock Whips

The Real One TM series

The Australian Stockwhip is known world wide as one of the best available and feature mutiple layers of Kangaroo leather, lead weighting and plaited belly for a very controlled rollout when thrown.

Its history goes back to the early 1800's and is still the mainstay of working whips with Stockmen and cattle handlers throughout Australia. The design is very well suited to the cattle handling environment where working from horse back is the norm, its handle is often used as a prodder within the close quarters of a cattle yard.
