Cowhide in general

Although cowhide is a commonly-used leather, it's a great, general-purpose flogger to have on hand. You might want more than one cowhide flogger, made with different hide. Our cowhide is sourced from Europe, mainly Britain, France, Italy, and Germany. Europe offers superior quality hides with no blemishes from mosquito and tick bites, or brands. We carry cowhide in brown, red, black, and sometimes we have other colors on hand, as well. Those are generally royal blue, white, and tan. Please inquire about other colors.

Using cowhide floggers in your scenes

We stock smooth and lustrous garment cowhides, medium weight, and heavy, thick hides. Garment hides are softer, lighter, and are good for general use throughout your scenes. The medium weight hide is perfect for mid-way through your scenes. It gives more sting from the firmer, thicker edges, as well as additional thump. Heavy cowhide is a nice step up from elk, before you reach for your bison flogger. Within these weights we have different tannages; some glovey and sensuous that you could use early on, even oil-tanned: dense, edgy, more severe. That one you'd want to save for later in your scene when you'd built up some endorphones in your play partner.

The sensations of cowhide

The lightest cowhide we offer is garment weight. This one produces a lighter thump and a little sting. You can vary how you throw it for more variety and it's perfect for general use in your scenes. Our medium weight cow has firmer tail edges and delivers more sting and thud. We can also put more tails in the bundle for you, for deeper impact. For those who love sting, the oil-tanned cowhide is as stingy as it gets. It's a heavier hide, so it does produce a lot of thud when thrown hard.

Cowhide, point by point:

The important features of deer and doehide floggers will guide you in your choices:

Weight and Texture

European cowhide in several weights. Lovely top grain, glovey, all of them premium hides with no blemishes. The tail bundle can be customized for you, too!


Lighter hides give lighter thud, with some sting. The medium to heavy hides are tumpier and have more sting. With more tails to make a mop, the thud is increased.


Depending on type of hide, from moderate, mid-scene or general purpose to heavier hides for more specialized use later in your scene.


We stock cowhide in chocolate and black and sometimes in a few colors.


We make cowhide floggers in both lengths and tail widths, and we can add more tails to the regular sized bundle. Consult with us for having a customized flogger made for you.


Sixteen (16) inches long, or twenty (20) inches long. We cut the tails one-half (1/2) inch wide, or five-eighths (5/8) inch wide, your choice. Wider tails equals less edges touching skin, creating a denser, deeper effect.
