Pairs nicely with a Whiskey Sour. It has a very solid amount of bite, but you know to expect it.
This toy was sent to me by Creamed and Sugared in exchange for my honest review. If you would like to purchase it, you can do so here for about $60 (USD) at time of posting. If you would like to look at their other amazing work, please do so here!
The Creamed and Sugared Tippy Twister sits on an orange cloth in front of a decorated bowl. It is made out of dark wood, and you can see the wood grain in the light. It looks vaguely like a knife, with a hook carved into the pommel.
So the kind folks at Creamed and Sugared gave me two toys, which I had hinted at before. But there is a distinct reason I saved this review for second. That reason is because I love this toy oh so much. Please note that this review includes some talk of blood and fear play!
And I’ll be honest here. The Tippy Twister was not my first choice of toy from them. However, I do enjoy Creamed and Sugared so much that I probably would have accepted almost anything from them. It was sheer luck that I got the Twister. And when I held it for the fist time, I was immediately in love. The wood is so dark, and it feels amazing under my finger tips. Although, I will say that Taylor hated the feeling of this finish, so there are some differing opinions here. However, I find the smoothness of this toy perfect. I can still feel the wood grain, but it’s subtle. Unlike the Twister itself.
So what is this toy? It looks like a cross between a baton and a knife. It has a handle and “blade” gently suggested in the carving of it. This gives it the appearance of something that could be used as a dagger. The main point of this is to allow those who want to experiment with fear play have a step between no knife and sharp metal bladed weapon. However, because the folks are Creamed and Sugared are so clever, there is more than one use for this toy.
Personally, I’m such a realist that I wouldn’t want this toy for fear play. I would be brought out of the fantasy by the reality that the blade isn’t sharp, and I would not enjoy the scene because of it. However, I’m also the type of person who enjoys the word “Puppy” to be carved into their thigh/chest. So the fear play aspect of this toy is not meant for me. I really love that this toy is there for those who would be less comfortable with a real blade. As a very occasional switch, I will say that this would be perfect if I were to ever top with it. The shape does convey when I hold it, even if it doesn’t when it’s being used on me. Brains are weird, aren’t they?
So what are the other functions of this toy? Well, I handed it to a friend of mine and let him try it out on me. We had been planning to do a scene anyway, and it just happened to coincide with my receiving this toy. So I let the experiment run!
The very tip of the “blade” has two points, which is why this is called the Twister. These points are designed to be pushed into the skin and then the whole item rotated, creating a digging and tearing type of action. This was the aspect of this toy I was most excited to try. Those points are mean, and thanks to some strong arm and wrist work from my friend, I was torn up in no time. This raised the toy’s rating for me because I like toys that are mean, and this one is blood-worthy.
In addition to the tip of the blade, there is another point for the pommel of the blade. This looks a bit sturdier than the tips of the blade, but it’s not as sharp. So it’s great for some skin hooking/pulling and sensation play, but I wouldn’t expect it to break skin or leave marks.
The last function of this toy is the use as an impact toy. I may not have thought of it myself, if I’m being honest, but it was mentioned as a possible use, and the dom using it on me figured that out for himself. As an impact toy, it had a little bit more sting than I enjoy. I like batons as a general rule because they have a rounded imprint when they connect, which is more likely to be thuddy than something flat like a paddle. However, if the wood of a baton is light, there is way more sting, but in a line instead of a wide area. The wood of this toy is a bit too light for it to have thud, and so I wasn’t a huge fan of it as an impact toy. Of course, I take any hits that my dom wants to dish, but in general, I found this toy not up to my thirst for thud (which is my first album name, by the way).
The Tippy Twister is sitting on an ornate bowl with the tip facing the camera to emphasize the two points at the tip, and the rough, unfinished wood between the two points.The one problem that I have with this toy is that I would not trust it to be sanitized. The wood grain captures too much bacteria. The dom who used it called it a “one and done” because now this toy is only mine. It can’t be used for others. For a dom, that is a problem because they will likely work with more than one sub. For me, I am definitely okay with this because I will never use it on anyone else. I’m not really a dom, and the doms I play with don’t get to keep this because it’s mine. But, it’s a good thing to consider when looking for toys to purchase because it might be a deal breaker for you.
After having this toy for two months, I am happy to say that I am proud and delighted to own it. I find that it fulfills many needs, even if it falls short in some others. I have many paddles and impact type toys at my disposal. This is something completely different. In a way, this toy is the result of hedging bets, but it did so successfully. For that, it earns high marks from me.

Indigo Tries the Funkit Pride Beat Cleaver 12"

10 out of 10
Would recommend for most people who enjoy being hit with things.
Pairs well with a neat bourbon. Specifically Wild Turkey.
CONSENT AND TRIGGER WARNING: THIS POST DISCUSSES CONSENSUAL HARM AND PUNISHMENT. THERE ARE ALSO PICTURES OF A (REALLY GREAT) BUTT WITH BRUISES ON IT FURTHER DOWN THIS POST. 
So I kind of love rainbows. I wouldn’t call it a problem so much as a solution. I fucking love rainbows. So when I ran across Kenton’s work at Funkit Toys, I had to have something rainbow. SOMETHING. And since I had been using wooden spoons from Wegmans as paddles, I decided that I needed something wood. Something big. Something rainbow.
And so I whipped it out (my credit card) and I bought the Beat Cleaver 12″. It is big. It is wood. It is rainbow. And my god, does it pack a punch.

It costs $32 dollars from the shop, and it shipped to me in about two days. When I opened up the package, I definitely danced a little, and it didn’t come in any special box, so I went straight from opening to whacking my legs experimentally with it. Ah, that is the pleasure of small toy companies. No stupid blister packs to cut open.

I won’t mince words: This paddle is tough. the handle is a foot long. The hitty-part (scientific term) is another foot. For those keeping score at home, that’s 2 feet of momentum here. If you hold that handle at the very end, oh my god, there is going to be a lot of force really quickly. To mitigate that, choke up on the handle, using the section right near that hitty-part and that makes it mush more controlled.
Honestly though, that’s not the REAL reason I’m in love with this paddle. The real reason is flexibility. I seem to have an attraction to things that are two-in-one. If you hit with the flat part of this paddle, it’s likely that you’ll get stung before any real bruising can happen. It is so satisfying for me, and I love working up to getting all that stinging into my legs and butt. Also, even though I don’t really bruise, it did leave this wonderfully dark place on my butt.

It’s hard to get a good butt photo. I haven’t bought a selfie stick yet. #slacking

However, if you used the edge of this paddle, it’s so different. Using it this way is very thuddy. Since I don’t really bruise (thanks genetics), I can’t see the effects, but I feel every hit from this side the next day. I live for the mornings where I wake up with sub-dermal bruising all over my back and thighs. These are perfect opportunities for my boyfriend to touch me and I get shivers all over from it.
I have had this paddle for about three months now and I have used it steadily. Typically, it gets used about once a week, sometimes more. Mine has shown zero wear and tear. It’s still vibrantly colored with the varnishing still intact. As far as I can tell, this paddle will be inherited by my family after I die. It will raise plenty of questions and offer few answers, I’m sure.
All in all, the versatility and longevity of this paddle make it a really great buy. I just spent some money on some silicone toys from Kenton, and I can’t wait to give them a shot!

Here’s a bone-us photo of my butt in case you forgot how great it is. Also, bonus funderwear. EVERYONE GETS A BONUS.
