This is an exact replica, made to the original specifications of the Lochgelly Tawse made by J Dick & sons, and as used in Scottish schools up until the early seventies. It is hand-crafted from the finest 12+ oz (5-6 mm) dense Oak Bark Tanned Harness Leather. It measures 21 inches by 1.5 inches wide and has two 9 inch tails.
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.
