Hunting Whips - Carefully Handcrafted in England

I’m often asked what makes a Loxley hunting whip stand out from the rest of the crowd. My fifty odd Years’ experience taking apart and refurbishing all top makes of antique whips many of which were metal lined, gives me a unique insight of what makes the very best in hunting whips. All my whips are handcrafted here in Wiltshire and 100% made by my hand alone.

How a Loxley Whip is hand-crafted!

I hand cut the best Pittard hide to the required widths and lengths, and the leather lace is then stretched and pre-tensioned by feel only. Any slight “sueded” edges of the cut leather lace are then flame-singed to ensure the finished hand plaiting on the whip stock is tightly set and perfectly seated.

Once the stock is plaited I apply leather care and gentle heat to penetrate the plaiting, after which the stock is rolled between two granite slabs under high hand pressure to smooth and bond the surface.

I use the best 2 mm saddler’s leather for the keeper, gluing the two halves together and punching out the keeper slot, before final stitching on my hand operated, Victorian era, Singer Bootmakers sewing machine. The keeper is then glued and papered in place before final whipping-on with traditional linen cord, followed by three coats of finishing and waterproofing lacquer.

When applying and setting the antler hook and collar I use traditional string thread and the latest high strength, structural bonding, two-part adhesives. A nickel-silver collar is fitted as standard and we offer collar engraving at a small additional cost. All whips are offered with handmade leather thongs or a nylon thong at an extra cost of 15.00. All whips come complete with a replaceable lash attached.

All of my Men’s, Ladies and Children’s whips I make to order and can usually be dispatched within 14 working days for delivery throughout the UK and Worldwide. If you have any special requests regarding the design of your new whip or would prefer a handmade leather thong please do not hesitate to email me.

I also undertake whip repairs to any make of whip.
