Cat o' Nine Tails
Maritime Style Naval Style
#5 Tasmanian Sea Cat o' Nine Tails
A Cat o' Nine Tails was used to administer punishment in the Royal Navy
and was used by many a ship's Captain to maintain order and discipline the crew. They were made of rope and were 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet long with a rope handle and 9 thongs and could have blood knots tied in the end of each thong. There was no set way to make a Cat o' Nine Tails. They could be made Brutally efficient, especially if soaked in saltwater before use, or tied Mercifully in-efficient. It is said they were deep sixed after use. Some Cat's had Whale-Bone or Wooden handles that had 9 thongs lashed on which made it easy to change them when needed.
I now offer Cat o' Nine Tails that are made with Natural Hemp that has not been Tarred with Stockholm Tar. I call them Blonde Cat's as opposed to Tarred Cat's which are dark brown in color.

#3 Atlantic Sea Cat o' Nine Tails
A customer review from Hollywood
I received the Cat today in the mail. The Photo that you have on your site barely does this implement any justice at all. This is the most beautiful Cat o' Nine Tails that I have ever seen. I normally hand in a receipt for props. They then demand that I surrender all that I have purchased with their money at the end of the job. All the props then just sit in a warehouse never to be seen again. I am not handing in the receipt and I am paying for this item myself, just so I can keep it. It's going on my wall with my collection. It is so beautifully crafted. I suggest that you charge more for this item in the future and consider larger photo's on your site. Thanks for getting this to me on time.... Cheers..........John
