Then I remembered what a liar I am.
To be honest, I only bought it for the novelty factor - "Oh joy, I have a whip made out of parachute cord. I'm soooooo very cool...."
I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got my hands on it. It performs almost as well as the two leather whips I bought from Dijon, and it's a helluva lot better than some of the cheap pieces o' shite that I previously bought on ebay.
For those that care, it's six feet long, two braided bellies, with a 16 plait overlay.
