The sinister looking Woven Handled Twin Plait Leather Whip is a bullwhip made to keep your submissive in line. Woven from 16 leather belts, or plaits, at the base, and 8 plaits closer to the end -- hence the twin plait -- this single tail whip is made heavier by its leather core, which not only increases the whip’s weight, but also makes it thicker. This thickness increases the surface area where the hit is received, reducing the probability of trauma and offering more of a thudded strike verses a lacerating sting. Striking or making contact with the tassels only offers a tickle or a slight sting to your bottom.
The Woven Handled Twin Plait Leather Whip has a long handle with decorative fringe at the top. The end of the whip has 8 tassels, and the leather has a thickness of about 1.5 mm. A fall and cracker can be added to these tassel-ended whips to achieve a cracking sound and a more severe lacerating effect to the subject that this is used on, if desired.

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.
