The Double Dutch
The Double Dutch is a slapper-style paddle, measuring 21” x 1 3/4” and made in our usual oak bark rich dark tobacco brown or black leather. One side is made from 4 mm thick leather as a strap. But turn it over and you will see why we call it a Double Dutch!
It is split in two the other side is a 5 1/2mm thick two-fingered Tawse!
Two straps in one – the perfect implement! The Tawse is slightly thicker than the strap side so you get two very different sensations depending on the side you use, along with a wonderful sound as it slaps down! It is so beautiful and we are very proud of it.
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.
