OVERVIEW

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 Kraton handle designed to resemble braided leather, the 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.

Pest Control
A great tool for keeping "pests"—of any size—at bay in a potential self-defense situation. Rest assured, most any sized "critter" you can think of will think twice about a second advance towards you once feeling the wallop this thing packs.

Unique and Exotic
Incredible price on an interesting weapon.  The quality is, as is always expected from Cold Steel, superb.  I became curious about owning a sjambok after getting the Cold Steel DVD set at an extraordinary price, and was not disappointed upon unboxing.  This will be a fine addition to any collection of unique and exotic weaponry.

Not as rigid as I imagined it, but will see how resilient and effective it is against coyotes and feral dogs. Thanks
