Ouch! - The Craftsman's Touch

The Roving Spanker recently visited to the workshops of Mike Cannell of Ouch!  Mike hand crafts the most exquisite leather spanking implements. After many hours of developing a design for a new type of implement, Mike painstakingly selects the exact grade of leather and produces several prototypes, until, finally, there is an item that meets his exacting standards.

The sheer quality of material and craftsmanship is obvious just by looking at the Ouch! range. But the real test of an implement is when being applied to a submissive female bottom. This is where Mike's real talent just shines through, as with each swing of strap, paddle, tawse, or whatever, the balanced feel of the implement feels like an extension of the gentleman's own arm. They are a joy to use.

The purpose of the visit was to collect a couple of Mike's fine products. 'Crocodile Tears' is the name for a range of hybrid strap/paddles made with 'crocodile' design in the cow hide top face. As can be seen in the picture, the detail of the texture looks exactly like real croc. the remainder of this beautiful implement is made from fine 6mm buffalo hide. This week the Roving Spanker had the opportunity to apply the Crocodile Tears to the bare bottom of a Spankeefinder listed spankee. After only a few strokes the young lady developed a strong sense of respect for this fine piece of workmanship.

Also to collect on that visit was a very neat strap, consisting of a rigid leather handle, with a very flexible leather blade, designed to impart a real sting to a bare bottom. Often with this type of design, the blade portion can twist in the downward stroke, causing the blade edge to impact first. but once again Mike had got the design exactly right. The same spankee was given a number of very firm strokes. and every one landed perfectly, leaving a neat stripe across her bottom. It was such a pleasure to use, the Roving Spanker did not want to stop!

Mike was in Atlanta for the the BBW spanking event, and took a number of his products. He says he should have taken a lot more, as they were a complete sellout in no time.
