The leather used in these floggers is a gorgeous metallic leather that is tanned specifically for us at one of our favorite tanneries in Italy, the home of some of the best tanneries in the world. It reflects the colors around it and the colors shift beautifully in the light. These floggers have steel cores and are balanced. The center black tails are black deerskin for a touch of nice thud. The tails are 20 inches long, the handle is 8 inches long. These floggers are sold individually. If you want a pair please add two to your cart. I would rate these as great for medium intensity play. They're not too light, but not too heavy. They have a good balance between thud on sting, leaning more toward thud. All of my floggers are made by hand in my studio in Los Angeles. This leather, in particular, is sourced from a tannery that practices eco-friendly tanning and sourcing for their hides. *Note- I call the leather chameleon leather for its color shifting properties, it is not made from chameleons.
