Description: This collaborative work between Johan Van Niekerk and Kevin Harvey is spectacular. Johan made the whip and Kevin made the knife that fits into the handle. The fit and finish throughout is excellent.
The black mamba is the fastest and meanest snake in South African and respected highly by those that walk in the bush. The whip is braided from kudu leather for the first braided section, blesbuck for the "fall" and bushbuck for the "cracker". Sounds like a rifle when cracked.
