Record Type: concept
cat-o'-nine-tails (<equipment for corporal punishment>, <equipment by context>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Corporal punishment tools consisting of nine narrow straps or ropes tied at the end with buttons, lead pellets, or iron nails. Served to whip the back and loins. The name is derived from whips with nine knotted lashes that were an authorized instrument of punishment in the British navy and army until 1881. For similar whips or scourges, but not necessarily having nine straps, use "knouts."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Strafwerktuigen bestaande uit negen dunne strengen of touwen met knopen, loden kogeltjes of ijzeren nagels aan het uiteinde. Werd gebruikt om de rug en lendenen te geselen. De naam is afgeleid van de zwepen met negen geknoopte uiteinden die tot 1881 als erkend strafinstrument werden gebruikt in de Britse strijdkrachten. Gebruik 'gesels' voor soortgelijke zwepen die niet noodzakelijkerwijs negen strengen hebben.
