Whip Attackers Into Submission

VENTURA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If anyone tries to rob or assault you, just whip ‘em. Whip ‘em good.

Cold Steel company is in the business of protecting people, offering an smorgasbord of self-defense items folks can use in a bind like ninja throwing stars, medieval axes, and blow guns.

However, one of their products is a real hit – the Sjambok – a whip-like tool from South Africa that’s often used as a cattle prod, riding crop, and whip.

Americans can use the Sjambok to cause serious damage on any assailant that dares to mess with them.

Company spokesperson Lynn C. Thompson says the Sjambok is the “must-have whip for city people and country dwellers” because it’s the ultimate self-defense tool.

It can destroy a tomato, watermelon, eggs, and even cans of beer, so one can imagine the world of hurt it bring to the human body.
