Timber Creek Performance Whips

 Jack's own design, these whips are well balanced and very smooth flowing.  Ideal for the beginner as it cracks effortlessly, but designed with the professional in mind.   The 12" handle makes it more accurate, while the braiding pattern lets the whip flex evenly in any direction, making cracking sequences flow smoothly.  For  pictures of this style click here.

Built to look like a historical 1800's snake whip but to perform like a bull whip.  This 6 foot black whip has two braided bellies and a 4 inch fiberglass handle.  The overlay is a hand stitched cover for 1/2 the way down and then transitions into a 24 stand herringbone braid.

Historical Whips

Historically accurate for the late 1800s, this 10' snake whip is shot loaded.  It has a sewn cover two thirds of the way down and then the cover is split into 8 strands and is finished in a braid. 


A Bullwhacker whip made for the living history actress "Calamity Jane".  The thong is 12 stand overlay and 16' long.  The 4' 6" handle is hand carved out of hickory.  This style of whip was used in the 1860's and 1870's by teamsters with long teams of oxen.  This whip is currently used in reenactment shows.



This stockwhip has a 22" handle and 6' thong.  The handle is covered in a 16 strand braid, the thong is done with 12 strands to make it tougher for everyday use. 


The fox head on the heel of this whip is hand carved out of deer antler.  15" handle.  6 1/2' brandy thong. 


Carefully painted to enhance the detail of the fox while still showing off the antler.




Jack made this half scale whip for our son Jim when he was 2 years old.  Jack has fun playing with this whip when there is not enough room to use a full sized one.  $170

 Hi Jack
Here is what I have to say about Cowboy by Design whips.
  While I am not involved in doing circus performing any longer I have been cracking whips for about 35 years now and I have to say that your Timber Creek Performance whip is simply one of the finest whips I've ever had the honor of owning!
  My 6' Whiskey & Black whip tracks beautifully and cracks with no effort at all, the handle fit's like it was made for me personally it has all the characteristics of any of the fine Kangaroo whips I've ever handled!
   With this whip I am inclined to possibly get involved with participating in some whip contests, I have only had one other whip feel this fantastic in my hand and it cost quite a bit more!
    Thank you so much Jack, I am almost afraid of what this whip is going to feel like once it's broken in!
   I took it with me to the WWAC Convention in Netcong NJ. where I let several pro's try it out including Mark Allen of Nevada and everyone was amazed at the beauty and suppleness of this awesome whip, thanks again Jack you are truly a master whipmaker, you have imparted qualities into this whip that I try to put into my knives!

"The whip came in the mail today...I'll tell ya, it doesn't feel like a 9 foot bull whip, it cracks so easy that I feel like I could go on cracking for ages with it.  Targeting will be no problem, absolutely amazing handling.  This whip has grace and beauty, as well as form and true function, just plain Awesome.  The thong travels so fluid and snake like and the handle is the perfect match.  I love the balance, actually  I love everything about this whip....  Thank you truly, for such a wonderful art piece I can't wait to show it off."  JJ
