Review | Oscuro Two Finger Leather Tawse
Disclosure: The Oscuro Two Finger Leather Tawse was sent to me free of charge for this review by www.latexleatherandlace.co.uk . I would like to thank them for the opportunity to put it through its paces.
I was sent a number of items recently from LLAL which arrived in a discreet brown box with no markings identifying what was contained within. The Oscuro Two Finger leather Tawse had a little company tag attached to the leather loop that was easily removable. Not much more to say on it than that, to the bin with it.
The Oscuro Two Finger Leather Tawse:
The Oscuro Two finger Leather Tawse is made from a good quality leather and features red stitching on one side and black on the other. It is 18.5” (47cm) in total length with 8.5” (22cm) long fingers. It is 8mm thick and weighs approximately 250g. It has a reinforced handle and leather wrist loop for better control when wielding.
It’s no secret that I really enjoy hitting people and if you have read my reviews in the past you will know that a large portion of what I enjoy about it is the sound of the contact, that satisfying “thwack” that seems to echo somewhere in my soul. When it comes to using implements for my hitting fun there are a few other factors that I look for as well. Does it make a sound as it travels to its target?, how do I feel with it in my hand?, do I think it looks cool and in a moment of unapologetic vanity do I think I look cool holding it? Its it a thuddy or stingy implement? And so on.
The Oscuro Two Finger Leather Tawse certainly looks and feels the part to my eye, the leather feels of a good quality and I could inhale that smell all day and night, the contrasting red stitching stands out beautifully and is well done. Conversely, the other sides stitching is also well done but doesn’t stand out at all and I think this is a good thing. Not everyone likes contrasting colours, the idea that depending on your tastes you can flip the tawse around really appeals to me.
Before I hit anyone with a new implement I always like to get a feel for both how it handles and what the impact feels like. The reinforced handle feels really good in my hand, I have a very good grip and that reinforcement helps it feel stable and not too flimsy, good for when you want to accurately hit someone. The leather loop at the bottom of the handle if of a good size that fits well and doesn’t restrict any movement. After some practice swings of various strengths I had a very good feel for how it handles and I can confirm that it makes a beautiful “whooshing” sound as it travels through the air.
A few whacks on my thigh, over clothes and on a bare forearm later and I had a pretty good idea of what the impact feels like and it leans far more towards the “stingy” sensation though it does have a bit of a thud as well given its weight and thickness. This achieves a deeper sting in my opinion that doesn’t feel as scratchy. The two fingers cover a good amount of surface area and as for the marks…well they depend entirely on how hard you hit but I didn’t have to hit hard in order to get a very nice pink mark that faded within 20 minutes.
I’ve used it with a few different play partners and I found that those that I play with who really enjoy bare bottom spanking enjoyed the familiar, though more intense sting. My slave who is a masochist could be hit with this all day after a thorough warm up and I would recommend a good warm up when planning on using this Tawse as part of a session. I found that in terms of pain delivery, for those that I play with, it sits more or less in the middle of the play. It’s too harsh for warming them up and for the likes of my slave, not enough to finish with. This of course is going to depend on you or those you are playing with. During my experimenting with it though I did find that the stitching is great for pulling across the freshly smacked flesh to bring about some interesting sounds from the willing recipient!
So does the Oscuro Two Finger Leather Tawse do all of those things that I want a hitty implement to do? Yes and it does so very well. It’s very good quality, it looks great, it handles really well, it makes all of the right sounds as it travels and ends with a very loud, satisfying “smack” (I do hit quite hard!). It feels like an extension of myself when I use it and I think I look pretty cool holding it.
I wouldn’t recommend it as a beginner’s item personally but if you have experience with impact play than I think the £27.99 price tag is fair and that you would not be disappointed with this Tawse having a place within your collection.
