- Order number: MWP420.sw
Until the middle of the last century the corporal punishment of insubordinate prisoners was commonplace in the prisons of North America. The standard implement for this was a prison strap, which was available in many different designs.
Our Canadian prison strap corresponds with an original from the Canadian province Ontario.
It is made from thick, very ridgid leather, which allows an exact dosage from playfully slapping to strict and punishing.
The edges are carefully tapered und the back is elegantly covered in Nappa leather.
The handle is re-enforced with a slightly flexible inlay.
In the production of the Canadian prison strap we use our heavy English saddle leather (please see additional description below) in black, and Nappa leather for the back.
Available in the following colours:
black with grey stitching
- burgundy with black handle
- mahogany with black handle
Length approx. 42 centimetres
Width approx. 6 centimetres
Our heavy English saddle leather is an especially high-quality drum dyed leather and has a thickness of approximately 4,5 to 5 millimetres.
The surface is not covered with insoluble pigments, but natural, providing a particularly pleasant grip and feel.
Over time it becomes softer, rather than harder (in contrast to cheap belt leather, which turns hard and brittle after a while).
This leather benefits from a little dubbing from time to time; oil, however should not be used, as due to the naturally retained surface it could change the colour of the leather.
