The Leather Discipline Strap had a shaped handle at the Teacher’s end, and it could often be found stiffened and weighted internally on enhanced models. It was a beautifully crafted instrument, but was not admired by those on the receiving end. It made a fantastic impact landing on Palms or Backsides.
