In Africa, the Sjambok (Sham-Bawk) is a cattle prod, whip, riding crop and an effective means of self-protection, whether from venomous snakes, or from varmints of the two-legged variety!
Unlike most western style whips which require a rolling “crack” to function, the semi-rigid Sjambok is swung like a rod or stick. The weight, speed and flexibility of the Sjambok’s lash does all the work, and little skill or training is required to wield it effectively.
Our synthetic polymer version of the classic Sjambok features a thick injection molded lash, and is equipped with a soft comfortable Kray-Ex handle that’s designed to resemble braided leather. Since the Sjambok is made entirely from super-tough polymers, it’s incredibly durable and able to withstand weather conditions which would cause a traditional leather whip to break, crack or mildew.
