Stories of the origin of signalwhips abound. Some say they were invented to use with dogsleds in Alaska and

some say they were originated by the hansom cab drivers in London.

Signalwhips are generally short whips ranging from 2.5' to 5' in length. They are flexible end to end and have

the cracker plaited into the tip of the whip traditionally. My signalwhips have a tiny loop plaited into the tip

so that the cracker can easily be changed by the user.prices range from $180 for a 2.5' signal to $350 for a 5' 16 plait signal.
