Whips have been continuously in use since humans first started domesticating animals. When cracked, the end of the whip breaks the sound barrier, creating a sonic boom that echoes across a surprisingly large area.

Featuring a two-piece design with a wooden handle and the body of the whip attached but able to swivel. More common in Australia, stockwhips have been used for centuries.
