3/4 of a dozen

This is a pretty flogger, but there were some quality and design issues like uneven falls and improperly cut petals that ticked us off right for the beginning. Add to that the fact that there aren't a dozen falls which seems so obvious and that the handle isn't weighted right makes us very meh about this flogger. It is staying in out toy box, but it isn't our go to flogger.

Use

This is a cat o' nine tails with heavy roses on the end. It's not a great beginner's toy due to the fact that it is more complicated to wield and is most assuredly painful. It's a thuddier sensation rather than stingy, but it is still intense because it feels like being punched.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

This flogger is made from leather. The falls are braided leather with leather leaves and roses. The handle is probably wood with leather braided wrap on it.

I have to admit, my major issue with this toy is the fact that it would have been so much cooler with 12 falls. There is something so iconic about a dozen roses, and the makers of this really missed out. Additionally, we both felt that the black braided falls didn't highlight the theme of this well. It would look a lot better if they were green. These are purely aesthetic issues with this.

There is a flaw in the fact that one of the rose falls is a full 2 inches shorter than the rest. Also one of the petals has a flaw from where the cut it poorly. It has a small slice in it. Several petals also had glue on them that I had to carefully remove. These are irritating issues that could have been easily fixed by better quality assurance on the part of the manufacturer.

Performance

The handle makes this hard to use because it constantly feels like the heavy roses are going to pull it from your hand. My dominant is very experienced, and he had issues making sure that the falls landed where he wanted them to with this.

It feels like getting punched because the roses all fall together in one big mass. It is extremely thuddy if you hit with the roses.

The weight of the roses also causes severe wrap if you don't hit where you are intending, so use caution with this and practice on an inanimate object until you get the hang of it.

Care and Maintenance

This is made from leather, so to clean it, you will need to invest in leather products. Leather can't be sanitized, so this may not be a toy you are going to want to share between lots of partners. On the flip side, leather is so easy to store. I keep mine in a trunk with all my other BDSM toys, but you can also hang it by the loop on the handle or really, whatever you would like to do with it. I wouldn't leave it in direct sunlight because it can fade dyes. I don't know if this would, but better safe than sorry, right?

Packaging

The packaging on this is the definition of minimal. It was tossed into the box with the rest of my order. It has a cardboard tag on the handle with the product name and company on it. That was it.

Personal comments

I have to admit, my major issue with this toy is the fact that it would have been so much cooler with 12 falls. There is something so iconic about a dozen roses, and the makers of this really missed out.

Experience

With an experienced wielder and some practice, this can be used two different ways. You can hit all of the roses together in one spot or cascade them over an area. These are two completely different sensations. Because the weight is all at the end, these will wrap around the body very easily, so be aware and don't hit something you aren't intending to.
Follow-up commentary
We are liking this less and less. It isn't the easiest toy to use, and in the heat of the moment, it just ends up being too much work to try to wield. I also can't take it a lot because well, how many time can you get punched? That is exactly how it feels.
