He sold the whip for how much? :')
according to crafting rules its a DC 18 craft weapons check to create an exotic melee weapon. How high is his intelligence?
Best case scenario he nails the DC rolling really high... the whip being a corner case with the measly value of 1gp.
DC*check result = progress value in silver pieces (10 in this case)
so 18*18=324 324/7=46sp enough to make 4'5 whips for a day's work or one whip in about 2 hours.
he had to pay 1/3 of the value in material(we waive this cost because frog tongue)
Items sell for half value so for two hours of work he gets 5sp (2sp if we don't waive the craft material price)
That is if he doesnt botch the check(I would'nt allow taking 10 with limited crafting materials)
if you follow the rules crafting is really not worth it
Edit: and +1 to what others have said.
OP You don't want to antagonize your player though and make this a rules knowledge pissing contest.
I woud ask the player to tone down a bit that playstyle, it's better if you reach an agreement.
