In Africa, the Sjambok (Sham-Bawk) is a cattle prod, a whip, a riding crop and a means of self protection. Unlike most western style whips, the Sjambok is not plaited from thin leather strips. Instead, it is carved whole out of Hippopotamus hide. Its considerable reach, lightning speed and devastating impact have built it quite a reputation as a sure defense against deadly snakes.
The Cold Steel synthetic Sjambok hits just as hard as one that is made out of the traditional Hippo hide. It was designed with input from Peter Mueller. It’s 25% heavier than the earlier model and features a much softer, more comfortable Kraton handle and made to resemble braided leather. This bigger, thicker handle, when combined with the heavier, beefier lash allows the Sjambok to be swung with even greater power and control making it a must have whip for city people and country dwellers alike.
