Crop by Icon Brands

Add resource

Almost too pretty to use.

This is a great step up from some of the whips and crops that eden sells, in the same price point. Plus it is pretty. Cant ask for more from a sex toy. Can it do what it was designed to do? And does it look good while doing it? The answer is yes to both of those questions.

Use

This is used to punish your sex slave, or for some light love paddling. This can be used by anyone, it is not designed toward any one sex. It is however best used with a partner, unless you enjoy hurting yourself by yourself. With the handle being made from body safe glass, this can also be used as a insertable sex toy, AKA a dildo. This can be used for light play, but it is best for some heavy spanking. This can also be used as part of a costume.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The handle is made from glass. It is about 7/8 of an inch in diameter, and on the heavy side. The handle has a pretty design etched in the glass. It is two fairy's facing each other with their wings open and a flower/vine design above them. It is a pretty design that also adds a slight amount of texture to the glass, making it easier to grip and not lose in the middle of a swing. The handle is about 5 inches in length.

The stem in between the glass handle and the leather tip feels like is might be fiberglass (or something close to it) covered in a mesh cover. It is very flexible and light weight. It is about 11 inches in length.

The leather top is soft and flexible. It has the feel of medium quality leather. It is a single piece that has been folded in half and attached to the stem at the bottom. There is a "F" symbol on each side of the leather. The leather top is about 2 1/2 inches is useable length.

The over all length of the crop is just under 19 inches. Over all this has the feel of a high quality item. If I could change one thing, I would upgrade the leather to a top grade quality. I would make it a little thicker. Other then that, this feels like it will last with little to no problems and take lots of abuse.

Performance

This works well. It has a nice feel to it when you swing. It has a nice crisp feel to it when it connects. Over all it is a great toy. We purchased it because of how it looked, not because we were planing on using it. BDSM is not really our thing. We do goof around with it from time to time, but we never hit each other with it. Not our thing. But if you are into that, this will work great for you.

Care and Maintenance

There is not instructions included with the crop. We know that it is made from leather and glass, so we know how to take care for those two materials. As far as the stem goes, it is pretty much a guess. You cant soak leather in water and leave it wet, it will ruin the leather. You can wipe it down with a damp cloth and they dry it with a dry cloth. That will work well for keeping the leather portion clean and ready for your next victim.

The glass can get wet, as glass is not porous and water will not hurt it. But since you are using a damp cloth to clean the leather, you might as well use it for the glass handle as well. Unless you are using the handle as a insertable sex toy, then you might want to use a toy wipe or some cleaner.

As for as the stem goes, I would suggest just wiping it down with a cloth. That is the safest bet. I don't see the stem getting too dirty though, so you should be alright with just a wipe down.

I store ours in the closet. Sometimes in the box, and other times just sitting on a shelf. I only worry about it dropping from a high height and the handle shattering.

Packaging

This shows up in a plastic box. Mine was slightly damaged during shipping, but the product inside was just fine. So the packaging works well in protecting the crop from getting damaged. The plastic box was a clear window on the front, in which you can see the crop sitting inside. The back has some information on the crop, as well as some other products made by Icon Brands.

The inside of the packaging is a plastic tray which holds your crop. The crop is held pretty securely in the plastic tray. I can hold the tray upside down and shake it gently, without the crop falling out.

The packaging is not as discreet as I would like. I enjoy storing our toys in the packaging they came in, assuming that the packaging works for storage. This one would work well for protecting your crop while not in play.

    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Experience

I only tested how this felt with spanking on myself. It can be as light as you would like it to be, or as hurtful and hard as you can swing. Its all in your arm as to how powerful this can be. Its all up to you.
Follow-up commentary
This is a excellent piece that we have had no problems with. The glass handle and leather crop have showed no signs of wear. It still looks brand new. This is worth the purchase for anyone who wants it because of its beauty, or are into heavy spanking play. This is your crop.
