Heavier than the Original Texas Prison Strap, the Black Peril Strap is 22 long overall, including the Black, and Natural EuroPly plywood handle. The business end of the strap is two layers of thick, black, oiled harness leather, with a 3/16 thickness. The Black Peril Strap becomes more flexible with use, but you still wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley, on a moonless night, at midnight. Or maybe you do! C’mere boy. I’ve got something big and black for you. You’re going to love it!
