Default woven sjambok?

ran across this odd whip. twisted cord monkey fist wrapping over a non-magnetic heavy ball, flat cord or fibre basket-weaved shaft covering, small metal tip ferrule. feel like it may have a whalebone core. there is a slight bend and it is very 'whippy' and very springy. will not support any weight. 34 in. long. (photos attached)

only other similar was a silver hilted sjambok, made from an animal's streched male member, with the same tip and same length. photo attached at bottom.

comments welcome. any idea on the age?

Default plaited sjambok

the top plaited sjambok looks very similar to a Dutch Politie sjambok I had some time ago (I swapped it for a bullwhip but wish I had kept it) it was from the Dutch South afrikan Police in the time of the Apartheid in the 1950s and 60s.

Weirdly enough, at a holiday "winter solstice" party just this past Saturday, a friend showed me a leather whip of penile origin and indicated that it was from a bull. Until then I was in blissful ignorance that such a thing existed. Apparently, if I am to believe the internet, in this genus the organ may be 80 to 100 cm long and is 3 to 4 cm in diameter.

Yup, un-tanned, raw 'Bully Sticks' made from the Bull's generative organ are available for dog chews up to 36" online. I imagine that the Rhino/hippo version could be even more substantial.

p.s. usually cut to about 8 in. sections, Dogs love 'em but they really stink!
