Swedish cavalry whip

This kind of whip has been a Swedish Cavalry issue. Its construction is as simple as effective: A strip of strong leather is folded around an 18" length of cane. Where it leaves the cane, it is sewn together without core for about 12". The last part is simply flat and tapered. The handle has an additional layer of leather to stuff it up, plus a turk´s head knot and a wrist strap. Age unknown, but at least pre-WW2. Does anybody know more?
