A rebenque, an Argentinian whip carried by gauchos.
These heavy whips serve both as a whip for horses and cattle and as a club or weapon.
They are worn hung from the gaucho's belt.
In this example the handle of the whip is covered in plain rawhide.
This has a good aged patina with some old stains and scars It has lost the loop which would attach the rebenque to the belt.
It has a broad strap-like lash, which has been much used - there is a small (2mm) split where it joins the handle, if used this would get worse & eventually break.
Dimensions : Length : 31" (78cm), Circumference of handle 3½" (8.8cm)
Weight 178g (6¼oz)
Ref : whip906
