Dragon's tail
image.jpg

A dragon's tail is a type of whip consisting of a handle, often made of wood and wrapped with leather, to which a wide triangular piece of thin leather or suede is attached. This leather or suede forms a lash which is a hollow tube tapering to a point at the striking end.

The whip pictured here is a signal whip, not a Dragon's Tail.
