Definition - What does Sjambok mean?

A Sjambok is a long, heavy, thick whip. It is traditionally made out of a tough material like hippo or rhinoceros hide, but is also commonly made from plastics. It is also sometimes referred to as a litupa.

Kinkly explains Sjambok

Sjamboks are made using a specific leather rolling technique to allow the resulting rod to be both flexible and durable. The rods, usually between 3-5 feet, are traditionally used by police to control riots. They are also used by herders, but have been adopted by the BDSM community as a toy used for both pleasure and punishment.
