Self defense whip?

Seems like a solid idea. Use a bit of braided wire to attach a handle and weight at the end and you got yourself a potent weapon. Anyone have any experience with something like this?

But why does it have a knife handle?

No idea. Maybe there's mechanisms in it that hold the whip in place or maybe it has something to do with grip? It's a little expensive for me to just impulse buy.

It would be cool to modify one to fit inside a small enough package that you could electrify the probe on it. Imagine getting whipped AND electrocuted

Sounds like a flexible cattle prod. I'd be afraid of it coming back and shocking me.

Yeah that's kind of what I'm picturing, but maybe not as floppy as a whip. Like maybe just enough tensile strength that it isn't able to spring completely back.
