A tawse consists of a strip of leather, with one end split into a number of tails. The thickness of the leather and the number of tails is variable

As the tawse was traditionally used as a form of corporal punishment in schools (where it would be used on the hand), it is often used in a BDSM context in school roleplay scenes.
