South African police sjambok

Modern South African sjambok, 4.5 ft. This genuine police item is made of finely molded plastic (seems to be polyethylene, although often stated as PVC). It´s used mainly for riot control and as a self defense weapon. Some so-called "vigilantes" abuse the sjambok for self-justice. The sjambok is no toy, but really dangerous - for others as well as for an unexperienced user. The sjambok was no standard equipment (like a baton etc.) but only used for fighting riots. Thanks to Raymond Sinclair for additional info!
