This whip has 15 faux-leather tails that are 19" in length. The wood handle is 6.5" long and the faux leather strap on the top is 5" long. There is a rivet holding the strap to the top of the handle. The bottom of the handle is wrapped with black vinyl and attached with a rivet. The wooden handle is slightly over 3" in circumference. The handle fits comfortably in most hands.
The picture below shows the handle in my hands. For reference, I have very large hands and wear size 12 rings.
We were not really pleased with the black vinyl around the bottom of the handle. It has a glossy finish versus a matte finish. This was the best picture I could get of it:
Finally, here is a closer look at the whole handle with the loop at the top for hanging the flogger.
When I was discussing this item with someone, they mentioned that they were interested in it but did not like the smell that comes with vinyl products like this. I do not remember noticing any smell when we opened up the package and when I put it to my nose during that conversation less than a week after receiving this, I did not notice any odor at all.
This flogger gives more of a stingy sensation. Perhaps we were not using it hard enough, but we found that it did not really leave any marks even though it did sting. We used it both for foreplay and also just around the house when kidding around. Others may be able to use it hard enough to leave some marks.
Because there were no cleaning instructions included, I contacted the company to see their recommendations. They stated that the flogger be cleaned with a rag with warm or cold water plus mild soap. They recommended that the rag not be soaked but lightly damp.
This toy was in a long plastic bag which was perforated down the side. Once you start peeling at the perforation, it opens very easily.
There was a small tag attached to the flogger which gaves the website address and states that the flogger was made of vinyl fabric, nickel free metal, and lacquer painted wood.
