Cow hide is the most common type of leather used in floggers and as such, you would recognize its feeling quite easily if you have a bit of exploration under your belt. That being said, there is important variability in sensations based on how the hides are tanned and treated.
This specific cow hide is a 5oz leather that is relative stiff to the touch, yet somewhat spongy due to its thickness. The resulting impact is therefore a thud sensation that masochists yearn for ! This gives a medium-to-harsh impact depending on the strength of motion. People looking for a thuddy flogger can't go wrong with one of these. But beware; used with enough force, this hide can rupture the skin and hence, fluid bond with its user.
All of these floggers are made from black hide, sourced from my local First Nation supplier.
Three styles are available;
Our hexagonal handle flogger, the smaller of the options, is great for the budget-conscious and early explorers. Its 25-ish leather falls are 1/2" in width, 18" in length and mounted on an hexagonal handle and finished with a D-ring, a wrist loop and a turkish knot. Crafted to provide the same sensation at the best price possible !
Our turned handle flogger is our mid-size option. It is crafted with 33-ish falls of 1/2" in width and 18" in length, mounted on a turned handle and finished with a turkish knot and braided hanging loop. This flogger is weighted for ease of motion and spreads beautifully at impact.
Our Mop style is for those who looking for the biggest punch ! Also crafted with 33-ish falls, each fall is 5/8" wide and 18" long. Although it is mounted on the same turned handle, its weight is significantly greater due to the wider leather falls and the counterweights hidden in the handle. Very thuddy, and will be loved for it !
