This leather paddle is made in the UK from textured black leather. It is quite flexible due to its length, making it much more forgiving than our wooden paddles. This paddle is ideal for beginners or serious players. It is a lovely warm up toy, and can be used gently or harshly to give a wonderful stinging slap. The length adds to the potential for sting, and makes it a great paddle for striking both butt cheeks at once.
