I purchased this whip a few months ago and received it at the beginning of July so it's practically brand new. It's an 8 Foot Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Style Kangaroo Bullwhip in Saddle Tan by Terry Jacka of The Australian Whip Company. I've taken very good care of it, as I do with any whip I own, and it cracks beautifully.
I'm including an extra Redhide Fall with attached cracker, and a handmade KOTCS Bullwhip Holder I made myself. Asking price is $600.00. I paid $750.00 for it. I'm reluctant to have to sell this, but my parents are under some serious financial strain and helping them pay for their mortgage or medical expenses is more important than me owning this whip. It won't cover much of their costs, but it's something.
Price is firm as I need to get as much as I can for it.

Like I said, I'm reluctant to sell it, but my family is more important, and what little I can do to help them will make me feel better. Terry's whips are seriously unlike any other whip I've handled. I've owned a Joe Strain, a Louie Foxx, a Bernardo Del Carpio, a Dan Ellefson, and none of them had quite the same feel as Jacka's. Really awesome whip!

I know I said that the price was firm, but I think I can let it go for $500.00. I don't know of where there might be a place to send PM's on the forum here, so I guess we can just do the transaction through the thread here? Moderators feel free to correct either of us if we're missing the PM section of the forums.

Also if you could provide your full mailing address to me as well and I will get this all packed up and ready to ship out next week.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!

I sent a message asking that about 3 weeks ago..In the hope of being able to buy it then....I guess it was missed, but yeah, I had asked about the possibility of lowering the price because a brand new Jacka is 600....So I was wondering if that would be possible...
Since Gailen picked it up for 500, I guess it was possible....Shame I didn't get my email noticed, but either way it got sold in the end..So all's well...

If you go to the Australian Whip Company's website (Terry Jacka's site) you'll see that the 8 Ft Crystal Skull bullwhip is $600.00 Australian dollars, and the 10 Ft is $850 Australian dollars. American vs. Australian Dollars. Plus that is the base price before shipping, which came to another $90 or so dollars after the conversion rate.
When I purchased this, the Australian dollar was stronger, and out of curiosity I just checked the conversion rate. For anyone looking to get a whip from Terry, I would do it now because the American dollar is stronger, which means you can get it a bit cheaper. I will be shipping this whip with all of the documentation along with the certificate to authenticate that Terry Jacka himself plaited this whip, to trdaggers. If he wants I can also provide receipts.
