A Sjambok is a type of heavy, short whip-like implement used for striking, formerly made of tightly rolled rhinocerous hide but today often made of plastic or rigid rubber.

The sjambok is typically about an inch wide at the handle end, half an inch wide or less at the striking end, and three to five feet in length

The sjambok pictured here is made by Cold Steel. They make 2 lengths and are very affordable.
