The Indiana Jones-Style Traditional Australian Bullwhip with Holder
We all remember either the original release of or reruns of the first of the Indiana Jones’ Movie series, starting with the Raiders of the Lost Ark. The professor/archeologist, played by Harrison Ford, went from digging for artifacts from around the World to adventurous agent for the military intelligence agency traveling the world. Indiana Jones gave archeology the 1940’s style adventures that was a part of an era connected to the Greatest Generation with its classic fashions. A major part of that fashion was the 1931 era A-2 Leather Flight Jacket that pilots and airborne units wore. This is the same Jacket that formed the basis for the Indiana Jones-Style Jacket that was a major part of Indy’s character.
What would the Indiana Jones Iconic image be without his fedora, leather jacket, pouch, khakis, and his bullwhip hanging down from his right side. The Indiana Jones bullwhip reminds us of the western frontier era of the cowboys taming the wild west. These were artifacts that gave that charismatic adventures look that is a signature of Indiana Jones look in search for archeological artifacts, that gave that tough but with refinement persona.
NOTE: The Indiana Jones-Style Leather Jacket, Fedora, Khakis pants, and Leather or canvas pouch can be purchased separately at CHECKOUT for your convenience.

Definitions, Parts of a whip:
Plait, Plating: “Plaiting refers to a method of braiding; “plait” refers to the number of strands.
Thong: Main body of whip, usually 8-16 strips of leather woven around a center, tapering down the length.
Fall: A thin single strip of leather, attached to the end of the thong.
Cracker: A string with a bushy end, attached to the end of the fall, that produces the “cracking” sound
The “Pop”: The “crack” of a whip is a sonic boom – the result of the end of the whip traveling faster than the speed on sound!
