This very nice costume cat o nine tails whip is a total of 21" long with a 4" loop handle. The round hard handle is 9 1/2" long wrapped, and has brass studs, with the same material as the narrow "tails" at the end, which I am guessing is a hide of some sort, looks like leather, feels like leather, smells like leather!!!, but is it leather, I do not know. Great for many charaters. A great prop. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
