The Canadian Prison Strap
Our Canadian prison strap is an authentic reproduction, made to the exact specifications of the Canadian prison authorities. It is the flagship of our Traditional Series. It is made of very heavy 12+ oz (5-6 mm) Oak Bark Tanned Harness Leather in Rich Tobacco Brown. It measures 25 inches by 3 inches, which includes the 8 ½-inch long handle, which has five layers of 9 oz leather to build the reinforced, rounded, hand-stitched handle. The very dense blade is 16 ½ inches long with eight 1/4 inch holes.
This is a very severe and heavy thick strap for the serious collector only.
All our implements are made from our thick Oak Bark Tanned Harness Leather and in a choice of Rich Tobacco Brown or Black. They are hand-crafted from beginning to end, made with care and attention for the perfect piece. It is beveled and burnished to a glass-smooth finish, with a saddlers crease around the edge. Not only amazing to use and feel, but beautiful to the eye too.
Although we try to select the perfect piece of leather for our implements, sometimes the leather does have slight blemishes and grain. Also, because this is a natural material, colour may vary slightly from hide to hide. This, however, we feel is what adds to its individual natural character.
ATTENTION: All our products require professional use to prevent unwanted injury. The London Tanners are not liable for any injury.
