The Karaka Fire Whip™ is made of Kevlar and has an absorbent core which holds plenty of fluid. We use stainless steel for the handle and shield as it does not conduct heat and is stronger and more durable. A rubber hand grip provides good control and comfort.
Can the Whip Thong be changed?
Yes the design is made especially for being able to change the thong over to a new one or even a longer one.
Do you sell parts for the fire whips?
Yes we do we sell all sizes of fire whips in the thong which have all the attached parts to put together with an existing handle. We also sell the handle, fall and poppers separately for replacement also. We have an instructional video available on the site for changing over the falls and crackers.
For safety please always check over all your fire gear before lighting and performing.
Will I need to change my Thong and crackers often?
This will all depend on the amount of use these whips get and if they are looked after correctly. Unfortunately with Poppers/crackers due to the nature of the use on this product they will need to be replaced often. The thong however if looked after correctly and not used on or for whipping hard surfaces should last much longer. When the flame on your whips starts to get to a flickering stage, this is when you will need to put the flame out straight away as any longer the fuel will stop burning and the thong will start to smoulder which can lead to deterioration quickly.
What is the best way to put out a fire whip?
We always recommend to be aware of your surroundings (such as distance from a crowd or building, dry grass or hazardous ignition pints) , so having safety gear set up is always key. Using a damp wet towel to quickly smother the flame.
