Is it possible to make the last segment a different width?

Something like this? I was thinking endcaps, but I want it to stretch to the second last to the last anchor point. I want something like what I've circled in this picture, but only at the end of my stroke, but I don't think the arrowheads could fulfill this request as I want them bent or curved sometimes. The red arrow thing is suppose to be the end I want.

The yellow part in the image is what I'm trying to achieve with the stroke, not manually drawing it in. But the thing I have circled does it for the whole entire line, not just the end. But again, I don't think the arrowheads could do this either.


You can use the Width Tool to do this:

Select the last anchor with the Direct Selection Tool, then click and drag on the anchor with the Width Tool to taper it.
