Signal whip

From Spanking Art
A signal whip.

Signal whips are a type of single-tailed whip, originally designed to control dog teams. A signal whip usually measures 3 to 4 feet (0.91 to 1.2 m) in length. Signal whips and snake whips are similar. What distinguishes a signal whip from a snake whip is the absence of a "fall". A fall is a piece of leather attached to the end of the body of the whip. In a snake whip, the "cracker" attaches to the fall. In a signal whip, the cracker attaches directly to the body of the whip.
