Who's Afraid of a Little Bamboo?

This bamboo cane is stylish in appearance, comfortable to wield, but far too light weight for anything but severely stingy impacts. Even gently bouncing it off the girl's butt was too much. Intense little implement...

extremely useful review
The bamboo cane-bat is one stingy mother. Though 40.5" inches long overall, it is extremely thin, being just 1" in diameter - basically the thickness of a pencil. This makes it very light weight and therefore super stingy. It is even thinner and lighter weight than other retail canes I have encountered. We really haven't had much success with it, sadly, though its appearance is certainly arousing as advertised.

My girl is much more a fan of thuddy impacts than the stingy ones and as such this cane just didn't do it for her, at least not in the normal sense. Working the thin cane over her buttocks and thighs left her squirming and tugging at her restraints. Even softer, lighter impacts were too stingy for the girl to sink into it. Despite a range of impacts, from light and slow to heavy and fast, the result was often the same; sting, sting, and more sting. Though using it on her calves did have a better affect. It seems that the more muscle tissue present, the more the impact is absorbed and appreciated (at least for my girl). For those with more muscular butts and thighs this cane will probably have a better affect than those with a little padding on their backside.

It makes a lovely and arousing sound cutting through the air and the leather wrapped handle does make for comfortable use. However, the light weight causes it to seem unwieldy. When using a heavier cane or paddle, the weight helps guide it to the target. However, when using this bamboo cane, it is too light for this to apply which makes it hard to be sure where the impact will fall. Even the slightest twitch in the wielder's arm can redirect it off target.

The specific dimensions of this cane are as follows:
Overall length of 40.5", handle length of 6", a rubber tip cover of 1.5", a "blade" length of 34.5", a handle diameter of 2.75", and a "blade" diameter of 1". The handle is wrapped leather with metal rivets holding it together.

Care:
Clean up, if necessary, is simple. Wipe down with soapy water and rinse and dry. I would refrain from using harsh cleaners or alcohol. The bamboo is sealed but could dry out and become brittle, causing it to splinter or shatter with use. Avoid soaking the leather, as always, and keep in a dry storage area. It comes with a metal ring at the end of the handle for hanging up when storing.

Though this cane is too stingy for our normal play or regular use, its harsh sting makes it an excellent punishment implement and a deterrent for misbehavior. Though I cannot recommend it for everyone, I do recommend it for those who seek intense sting. Overall it is a well crafted, beautiful toy, just not right for us...
Experience
The girl's perspective:

Intense, intense, intense! While this cane can be applied lightly (letting it fall onto the target with little effort on the part of the partner using the cane), it remains a fairly extreme toy. The lightest tap produces a quick sting, and firmer strikes leave behind a lasting bite. While I am a bit of a masochist, there are days that it is more difficult than others for me to find the place where pain is delicious. Unfortunately for this cane, we haven't found that day quite yet. However, while I haven't fully enjoyed heavier strokes to my bum, use on more muscled tissues (such as my calves) produces delightful sensations when this cane is applied with a little to medium force.

    I should say that when I said it was 1" in diameter, I meant circumference. Not sure it matters overly but I like to be accurate.

    Now I want one of these. I'd love to compare it to the 80 cent wood dowels from the hardware store. Great review!

    Thank you, sub.girl, I have to say that my girl loves the dowel rod canes I made for her better than this cane, but really that is because of the density and weight of the impact. This bamboo cane was far too stingy for her to get into anywhere but on her calves. Thanks again...

    My husband and I have been considering new forms of impact play. We purchased our first paddle a couple of weeks ago and were wondering about canes. Thank you for such a thorough review -- i esp love how it was reviewed from both sides, the giver and the receiver. nicely done!
