UPDATE 7-28-16, 1:08 pm: Okay folks, all the cores I have available have sold, so that’s it on the Teacup whips for now! I’ll probably do another batch in a couple months or so (or sooner, we’ll see). Thank you all!

UPDATE 7-28-16, 11:45 AM: We have 2 Teacup builds left, and one of them has a clasp like the top Teacup whip in the photo above (non-detachable)!

UPDATE 7-27-16, 2:53 PM: We have 7 Teacup builds left!

UPDATE 7-26-16, 11:38 PM: We’re down to 10 Teacup whips left, folks!

Teacup whips, yay! I’m making 19 more of these babies, and they go quick, so when I’m done, I’m done (till next time)! These are 20″ long, 12 plaited in kangaroo hide, with an 8″ Indian tan latigo fall and nylon cracker, and includes an ‘O’ ring and a detachable double ended snap hook, so the whip can also be used as a short lead. If you’re fast, contact me and pick your own colors, otherwise I’m plait them and post them here as I finish them and you can pick and choose. Teacup whips are $49.95 each plus shipping.

(SOLD!) 5ft 16 plait Snake Whip!


Copy and paste version: desert.minx@mojaveoutliers.com

Hot off the plaiting vice, this is a 5ft 16 plait snake whip in red and black kangaroo leather, single strand offset pattern. I’m calling it the “Accidental Whip,” because it started out as a Mojave Lite whip, but for some reason I made a shot bag that was too big. So, waste not want not, I made it into a full build regular snake whip. This has a more supple thong due to the shot bag, throws like a DREAM, very accurate, with a good loud crack. Finished with a 24″ tapered latigo fall. Just send me an email if you’re interested or you have questions!

Look below for some detail shots of this whip.

NOTE regarding Teacup whips, as of June 11, 2021: I am currently NOT building Teacup whips. I have a severe injury on my right hand ring finger (“trigger finger”), so to minimize aggravating it, I’m temporarily putting a stop to Teacup builds. I’ll let folks know when they go back up on the spec list.

Introducing the Teacup micro snake whips! These whips, which double as a short lead or lanyard, are 20 inches long, 12 plaited in kangaroo hide, with an 8 inch Indian tan latigo fall and a cracker. They’re plaited on a one inch “O” ring, and come with a double ended snap hook that can, if desired, be removed. They’re built with a tapered core, and yes, they actually do crack, although it’s very quiet as this is a very tiny whip.

Pictured, of COURSE, with a pair of oriental teacups! This one has a clasp rather than an “O” ring and double ended snap hook, and it cannot be removed. This was a one time deal though due to chance; normally these come with the double ended snap hook.

I used to make these on spec only, but these days if you’d like one, I’ll enter you onto the Interested Parties list (my custom order queue) along with all my other builds; feel free to email me and inquire! Bear in mind that the only thing about Teacup whips that I’ll change is the color(s) of the overlay. What that means is you can’t change anything at all except the color of the overlay. These are a specific size, 20″ (you can’t change that), the fall is 8″ and made of Indian tan latigo (you can’t change that, either), the heel knot (you can’t change that) has a ring in it (which you can’t change), and it comes with a double ended snap hook (which you also can’t change). A Teacup micro snake whip is $80.00 plus shipping.

Below are photos of MORE Teacup whips, by way of serving suggestion! Enjoy!

Check this out! Adam Winrich was kind enough to make a short video of himself as he throws one of my whips! In this case he’s throwing a 3 foot, 16 plait black kangaroo leather snake whip. Not bad for a “little black whip,” eh?!! Woot!

Testimonials (and more pics!)

And here we have the odd glowing remark sent my way, in the captions of each of the photos where applicable! In addition, this page is under construction, to explain why there’re only a few pics so far–I have to go hunt down what folks have said! So stayed tuned…

Mojave Outliers Whipmakers Chocolate Deerskin Flogger

An 8″ flogger done in dark whiskey kangaroo hide on the handle (12 plait bird’s eye), with a double helping of buttery soft deerskin falls. Total length is about 27.5″.

Of course here we have an exception to the testimonial in the caption, but this one was too long to fit as a caption.

“Just last week, a friend of mine received a gorgeous, custom-made, deerskin flogger handcrafted by you. We both appreciated your gifted artistry immediately upon first inspection. As I am usually on the receiving end of the dance, the sensorial aspect of a whip or flogger is what affects me the most. Honestly, the quality and uniqueness of your work has surpassed all floggers I’ve encountered thus far: the tingling feel of the buttery-soft falls against my skin; the sweet smell of the deerskin leather across my face; the hypnotic sound of the handle’s rattle; the image of the “fan of fingering falls” across my body… Sublime, all of it.

Second, I want to add a comment directed at others like me, those people who aren’t familiar with all the technical aspects, people with little experience handling floggers. I had the opportunity to share the experience with my friend. I’ve shied away from holding floggers in the past; usually they’re too heavy, awkward, and simply unmanageable for me as a novice. Within minutes of holding your deerskin flogger, it felt like it was a natural extension of my body. The balance of weight, the girth and kangaroo leather plait of the handle, the natural pattern of the falls, overall comfort – each of these elements helped my confidence and creativity soar. In my personal experience, this flogger could be as soft as a breeze or used in way where I can feel a greater impact. My friend (and it practically being my first time leading the dance) said it felt like the greatest massage ever. I believe he started flying after just a few minutes, but I am certain he started to moan with pleasure immediately! And an hour later, I still had the strength and focus to hold the space inspired by the flogger.

Finally, although the flogger connected my friend and I, the energy between us was as intimate as if we were simply touching, skin against skin: the flogger became the perfect conduit as it slowly blended into the background – this “blur” being a desired and predictable result when the highest quality of materials is married to undeniable talent. If you like to support small, independent craftspeople, Mojave Outliers is a perfect choice. You can feel the love infused in this flogger. Its energy is intoxicating. Its quality is off the charts.

Pros: Amazingly supple falls; range from a literal breeze to greater impact; well-balanced; ease of handle maneuvering; weight; high quality materials; sensuous design; top-shelf craftsmanship; excellent piece for both beginners and flogger aficionados, outstanding value.

Cons: None. (Well, maybe it would be nice if it came in pairs!)”

How to Order Something From Mojave Outliers Whipmakers

Yes, I am now accepting custom orders again, yay! However, I’ve made changes from how I was doing it before, so read carefully.

I’ve invented what I call my “Interested Parties” list. On this list I take down your contact information and a description of the whip you’d like me to build for you. Then, when I’m ready to start your build, I contact you to find out if you’re still interested. No money changes hands, and in the meantime, you’re free to shop with other whip makers if you like. Once I’ve completed your build, THEN I will send you a PayPal invoice.

My queue is longish, varying between 8 months to a year (and sometimes longer, especially during the holiday season for instance), which is actually pretty normal for whip makers. Part of the time I spend in my shop I build smaller spec items, because this helps me even out the cash flow in between custom orders. The idea behind the “Interested Parties” list is to keep us both flexible. I need to be able to control my work flow, and naturally you need to control your cash flow, so not having a debt between us until I’m ready to ship seems to me the best way to go. What this translates to is that if you’re on my “Interested Parties” list, that doesn’t mean there’s a contract between us such that I’m going to build your whip by a specific date, it just means that I’ll check that list FIRST before I do my next build. The advantage to you is that you’re not out a bunch of cash at the outset (some folks use the wait time to save up for their whip, which I think is quite clever), and you’re not “locked in” to your purchase with me–you can shop if you like, as I said above.

Naturally if you have questions about this, send me an email at desert.minx@mojaveoutliers.com. And if you’d like to place a custom order, why, then send me an email at desert.minx@mojaveoutliers.com, and we’ll get your details sorted!

Payments and Shipping

Payment is via PayPal, so don’t worry about sending a payment until after you and I have talked and sorted out all the details. I can give you a quote for your build, of course, but typically I don’t send an invoice until I’m ready to start your build. I can also give you an idea of what the shipping will be, but since the post office tends to raise its rates pretty much by surprise, then when I actually send you the invoice, I will re-calculate the shipping at that time. If there is a change in shipping costs, I’ll make sure you’re aware of it. Naturally, the invoice needs to be paid in full before I ship your whip to you.

As for shipping, domestically so far I use the United States Postal Service (USPS) exclusively. For tiny items (like the Baby Basilisk) I can ship First Class, but for most everything else I use Priority Mail, which includes tracking and tends to be a lot faster.

For international shipping, I use USPS Priority Mail International, which takes about 6 to 10 days to deliver. While the package is traveling in the US, you can track it using the USPS postal tracking site. Once it crosses the border, then in MOST cases you can simply use that country’s postal service to track the package using the same tracking number (which also happens to be the customs form number). I do NOT use First Class for international shipping, because they HAVE lost packages when I’ve done so.

International shipping also entails customs and other taxes for you, the receiver, based on the declared value of the item you’re receiving, payment of which is between you and your customs officials. Please do not ask me to risk my livelihood by fudging the numbers on the customs form for your order.

As always, if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
