Thorns of the Black Rose

For the price, I was surprised at the quality. I'm still skeptical that this is real leather, but if it is, this is quality made, even if it isn't it is still quality made. This is one of the only floggers at this price that is that intense while looking so good. For serious kinksters on a budget, this is pretty awesome!

Use

This beautiful flogger is both sensual with its rose accent on the end, and intimidating with its black leather. A bit on the heavy side, this can apply a bit more force than lighter floggers making it more suitable for experienced users, but beginners can take a crack at this too (badum tss) with more of a light touch. Whether with a partner, or self-flagellation, rough, or gentle, this can do it all; well almost all, as this is made of leather this can't be near water and thus if you wanted to you couldn't punish your sub in the pool, shower, or bath.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

This flogger is beautiful; each of its long falls are made of a beautiful leather with a width of .5 cm which isn't so thin it snaps, but thin enough to distribute force to a small area only to make each newton of force count. Each strip is double sided so it retains the look of craftsmanship throughout unlike most leather objects which is only leathery on one side and the other side looks felty. The handle is wrapped with what looks like a more shiny leather; in the product pictures it looks more pastel and plastic toy like, but in real life, not so at all. The wood makes the handle area a bit lighter than the falls, so it provides for great momentum to provide a nice TWACK. The leather handle strap helps to keep this atleast on your wrist if you get a bit enthusiastic and this somehow falls out of your hands.


At 25" this is as long if not longer than most crops on this site which is great since I love long whips. It also provides more leeway to not accidentally hitting yourself or your partner with the handle by accident which is not fun at all.
The rose at the end makes a great accent, it makes this whip seem a bit more magical, almost a dangerous fantasy. Play the vampire dominatrix, or the cruel sorceress/torturer, the possibilities are endless.
The product information states this has some part made of silk, but everything fabric like: rose, handle wrap, falls are made of leather and the handle itself wood.
The fact this is made of leather means this will last a long time as long as it isnt exposed to water; the double sided leather makes the falls all the more durable, and even the rose accent doesn't seem like it'll fall off which is a first for non nailed on accents.

Performance

Due to the heaviness of the falls, this might be a bit hard to control and hit softly at first, but when you do you can hit and have the end results being a light tickle, or a hard smack. This makes one of the best whooshing noise I've seen outside of plastic being twirled and that itself gets adrenaline pumping. While this doesn't leave any real marks, you will be red for a little bit. This is also one of the strongest whips I've seen on this site for the price as this isn't too expensive! The grip is very sturdy so it's not too likely this goes flying as long as you're actually holding it and don't let go, but just in case the strap works too and that is pretty well set on so it won't just tear off that one time you let it go flying.

Packaging

I love the box


It looks so sensual, and while it isn't decadent like LELO, it still looks great. Inside it comes wrapped up with a little plastic band and there isn't any needless packaging which is great. This is not discreet however, but the box is easily recyclable and easy to hide within the rest of the paper you're recycling.

    I just grabbed everything from this line, someone had told me that this packs a bit of juice as well and suggested some paddles that will be heavy but has fur to be light as well. I still picked this up because I wanted it to go with the line. Thanks for sharing!
