    In Africa, the Sjambok (Sham-Bawk) is a cattle prod, a whip, a riding crop and a means of self-protection. Unlike most western style whips, the Sjambok is not plaited from thin leather thongs. Instead, it is carved whole out of very thick Hippopotamus hide. Its considerable reach, lightning speed and devastating impact have built it quite a reputation as a sure defense against deadly snakes. Since the Sjambok is swung like a rod or stick and not cracked like a conventional western style whip, the weight, speed and flexibility of the Sjambok’s lash does all the work and little skill is required to wield it effectively.

    Today Hippo hide is pretty scarce and not commercially viable, so Cold Steel has decided to make a synthetic version of the classic Sjambok. Featuring a thick, beefy lash, injection molded from polypropylene and equipped with a soft comfortable Kray-Ex™ handle designed to resemble braided leather, our synthetic Sjambok rivals the look and performance of even the most expensive originals. What's more since it's made entirely from super tough plastic it's impervious to the elements and will never break, crack, shrink or mildew like leather is prone to do.

    Keep a Sjambok handy in your vehicle. Lay it across the dash, stash it behind the seat or toss it in the bed, trunk or boot. Hang one on the wall near the door of your home, shop, barn, coop or kennel. And don't forget to loop one over your saddle horn every time you go riding, as our Sjambok is sure to be the most useful and effective whip you have ever owned.

    My husband purchased this item to add to his weapons collection. It appears to have great potential as a self-defense tool. When my husband is not practicing his defense moves, I use this item as a ring mandrel/sizer for my wire jewelry making! The size of the product makes it easy to gain leverage during jewelry-making while the texture keeps my rings from slipping while I create them. This product serves a variety of purposes around our household - it's great! The only thing that could potentially make it better would be to have ring sizes pre-marked on it! :) Great product, all around.

    I have owned a sjambok for several years now .. all I can say is wow ...

    I originally bought it as a snake defense item .. and for killing snakes it is instantly effective .. I have several large dogs and a couple times in the last few years myself or my better half has used it to stop a dogfight.. either with our own dogs or even with the neighbors pit bulls and it is a dogfight STOPPER.. and without any permanent injury to the dogs.. but it will instantly get the red zone attention off of the fight I do have the 52" model which I no longer see as a item offered and am disappointed I wish I had another..which the extra length is welcome for a angry 5ft rattlesnake whenever the commotion starts..... make no mistake my sjambok is in my hand

    this is a must have item for any non urban homeowner, it hangs just inside the back door

    I've been a CS fanatic for many years and I own 2 different length Sjamboks. I keep them in the trunk of my vehicle. The sound a sjambok makes as it whistles thru the air is enough to send predators (animal or persons) away in a hurry. The tremendous damage they are capable of doing due to the design is phenomenal. The speed. ... If you have the distance to keep the nasty at bay, this is a devastating tool. A skilled attacker will take the hit and quickly get inside making it useless. But for snakes, assassins friend indeed! Dale, CleveHts Oh
