Cat's Paw


The Cat's Paw (or Spanish Tickler) was oftentimes attached to a handle; in size and appearance it was an extension of the torturer's hand. In this way it was used to rip and tear flesh away from the bone, from any part of the body.

Trivia & Comment

The name 'tickler' and 'paw' of course belie the true horrifying nature of this implement.
