I love the whips. They're beautifully made. But I wasn't entirely happy with how Ben Hur transacted and communicated with me. One of the whips was apparently attacked and destroyed in the middle of the night by his cat, and rather than telling me, he sat on this information for a week, I think it was, before admitting to me what happened and that he would have to rebuild the whip, delaying further the delivery of my order. Cats are @$$4o|e$, as I think we all know, and stuff happens. I wasn't upset with that but with the all-too-often non-existent communication from this shop. I understand most on here are doing this for a sideline business and have other pursuits that take priority, but I'd have been far happier being kept in the loop on this matter rather than in the dark.

A Humble Hobbyist Hopeful
For a long time Ben has crafted his outstanding creations as a way to pass the time and make gifts for friends and family. Only recently has he gradually increased his productivity in an effort to see if he could turn his passions into something more than just a hobby.
Ben receives his inspiration from a variety of sources; from fellow artists, pop culture, and the world around him.
With a background in animation and graphic design Ben aspires to add to his list growing mediums, including but not limited to; 3D Printed jewelry and designs, Novelty Business Identity (e.g. metal coins, poker chips, etc), & Custom Designs and Ideas for real world products be it under his own Brand or for other Brands.
If all his dreams were to come true, Ben's empire will also one day include divisions in the Special Effects / Film /Entertainment Industry, Video Games / Gaming, & Comic Books.
At the end of the day, Ben loves what he does regardless of what the future has in store. And that's all anyone could ever ask for.
