I have purchased a set of tawses and strap few months ago from The English Cane Company*.
Sadly I was away unable to collect the parcel for couple weeks so the strap and tawses suffered a little bit having been bent tightly for so long. They have been hanging since then trying to straighten out gently without any wrinkles to the leather.
And I know pronounce them ready for use!
I have had rather a lot of fun trying some of them out on some of you the last couple of weeks.
The good thing about The English Cane Company is that their tawses are not only made to look like Lochgelly tawses but the type of dense leather used, and its processing, actually makes them feel quite close to the originals. They have comparable weight and very comparable efficiency. Although of course, being made to order, they don’t have the old look or traditional smell.
Can’t wait to put them to more use…
*The English Cane Company – very good leather toys. Durable. Well and safely finished. Havent tried their canes, but if you need straps or tawses you really want to give them a go.
