A flapper is a hybrid of a flogger and a crop, with long thin falls at the end. The 4 Leaf Mini Whip is an elegant little instrument ideal for use in tight spaces. Made of sumptuously smooth semi-glossy black leather, the short thong of this flapper is completely flexible, making it very easy to control. The 4 long, soft, approximately 1 inch wide flaps can be teased over the skin for subtle sensation play, or thwacked across the flesh with force, producing a pleasant smacking sound and a mild to more intense sting.
The handle of the 4 Leaf Mini Whip features 4 evenly spaced braided knots at the base, allowing for an excellent grip and more control. The pliant thong ends in 2 more knots that hold the tails of the flapper in place. There is a braided loop at the base of the handle for use as a wrist loop or to hang on the wall. The compact size of this handsome little whip makes it ideal for taking to social events.

Safety and Usage
Whips should only be handled by an experienced handler. You will hit yourself on the head, arms and back while practicing, please seek out a professional for training so you don’t do any permanent damage to yourself or loved ones. If you are going to practice on your own, use proper safety gear; goggles, wide brim hat and a scarf or other neck protector. Those who practice flagellation should start with a soft flogger to warm up the skin and muscles. Paper targets are best to start with.
To keep your whip in shape and ensure that it has a long life, take care of it. The worst thing you can do is to get it dirty and wet. Both dirt and water will damage the whip and ruin it quickly. On the other hand, not all leather oils are good for your whips; they are designed to soften leather and keep it moist -- which is not a good idea, as we’ve already pointed out. If you want to break in your whip, just use it.
