This fine paddle will remind you of days gone by, when Grandma was not afraid to deliver a well earned spanking. The Slipper part comes from its flexibility; Made of 2 layers of  British Oak Bark Tanned Harness Leather; the Top layer is 4mm (10 oz) and the bottom layer is 5-6mm (12+oz). It is completely hand stitched all the way around the outside edge and has a built up handle inside the two layers.  This not only gives it real substance, but also builds up the handle for better grip. Measuring 13 inches by 3 inches at the wide end, it has a 2 inch knobble at the other, with a hole for hanging. It is approx 3/8ths of an inch thick.

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 bevelled 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.

    This is a very wonderful, and beautiful, leather paddle. I love the shape and the fact that it concentrates on one cheek at a time, while the oval striking end gives a lot of coverage on the target area. I was the recipient, but was told that it is very comfortable in the hand, nicely weighted and so very easy to handle. The double layer of leather makes it very firm and stiff, so it imparts a very sharp sting with that wonderful leather “burn” sensation to follow. It was used on me as a “warm up” tool, but don’t let that mislead – despite it’s small size it packs a severe punch, and was a necessary, and very stingy, step before the onslaught that the Warden’s Strap delivered.

    Another beautiful creation.
