When was the last time you broke the speed of sound? Better yet, when was the last time you doubled the speed of sound? Yes, that's right, the whip is the only weapon that I can think of at the moment that can actually break the speed of sound. That's why you hear that groovy crack when you flick a whip properly.
This whip is made in Spain, where they really, really know how to make whips. It's 100% fine braided leather, decorated with brass studs and dyed leather cuffs. It features a stylish brass cap at the base of the handle, a leather wrist loop and a replaceable "cracker" at the tip.
This is a fully functional whip, rugged and durable and capable of lasting a long, long time with proper care (use saddle soap or talllow). It also makes a wonderful costume addition and an intriguing display piece. Oh, all right, and it's an awesome addition to any S&M tool kit. There, I said it. Lord knows you've all been thinking it.
Please take care when using whips as they can hurt like hell or injure you seriously if used improperly.
Length: Eight-Foot or 5-Foot Versions available.
Materials: 100% Spanish Leather. Brass Studs.

The flintlock pistol was the greatest advance in pirating since the wooden leg. The concept was fairly simple: gunpowder was stuffed into the barrel. A lead ball, usually wrapped in some sort of fabric, was stuffed in. A hammer was then pulled back half-way and left that way until the gun was ready to fire. The pistol technically was not meant to fire in this position, although sometimes they were known to go off half-cocked (and yes, that is the origin of that expression). When the gun was ready to be fired, the hammer was pulled back all the way and the trigger was squeezed.
