: Thanks Dale. I really like the David Morgan bullwhips. They are expertly made and have outstanding handling characteristics. It's easy to see why he is one of the top whip makers in the business. I normally recommend them as top of the line. You also get the bonus of having the same kind of whip that Indiana Jones had! BTW How did you get him to autograph your copy of his book?

Well, me and Mr. Morgan discussed the characteristics and he
answered some questions I had about his whips during the
summer of 1997. I finally got down to it and bought one.
Shortly after receiving it and discovering to my delight
that this was one of the greatest whips in the world, I
informed him that I would be interested in ordering his
book, since I HAD to find out how these wonderful whips
were made. I am an autograph freak by nature, and asked
him if he would sign it for me, after all, I did just buy
a $520 bullwhip from him. He told me that he would be happy
to sign it. So, after a month-long trip from one side of the
country to another (and after having had stalked around taking
pictures at George Lucas' house at Skywalker Ranch in the hills
Marin County) I returned home and ordered the book as a birthday
present to myself. I e-mailed him telling him of my order, and
he signed it before it went into the mail. To my surprise, he
signs the D in his name the exact same way I sign mine!!!
I probably sound like I'm bragging, but I also wrote a letter
to Harrison Ford, and he liked it so much that he called me,
then I sent him my Raiders movie poster and he autographed
it for me!!! I have never been so flattered in my entire
