The Braided 6 Tail Flogger is a classic cat o’ six (or cat of six) tails whip, finely crafted and capable of inflicting serious pain on its subject. During a blow with a short handled whip or flogger, the tails spill out, for a hit that spans a wide area. The acting principle behind this 6 tail whip is similar to the action of a traditional flogger -- the difference being that each tail carries significantly more force because of their individual weight. Each tail is braided from 4 belts of soft leather. As the weight of each plait increases, the force of each doesn’t increase in relation to the weight. This concentrated impact, in combination with the weight of the tails, deeply penetrates the tissue, affecting the muscles underneath as well as the skin itself.
The tails of the Braided 6 Tail Flogger are braided from 4 cone-shaped belts. The cone-shaped tails have a complicated weaving pattern, with no knots at their ends. This makes for a very smooth, even strike with much more control after impact. The ends of each tail are flared, with a slit and slip-through method for finishing the braid.
The Braided 6 Tail Flogger is well balanced and relatively light, with the thick handle providing a counter weight for the tails. The handle is braided over a steel core, with wrapped leather strips at the base and the end and a nice leather wrist loop attached with a metal eye hook and a rivet. Great for BDSM impact play, the Braided Six Tail Flogger is less likely to lacerate the skin than other 6 tail whips, as it has more of a thudding impact verses a sting.

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.
