Cold Steel sells these at 42 in. ($18 + S&H http://www.coldsteel.com/Product/95SMB/SJAMBOK_42_BLACK.aspx) and 54 in. ($28 +S&H http://www.coldsteel.com/Product/95SLB/SJAMBOK_54_BLACK.aspx )

As far as using one ... Lynn Thompson of Cold Steel and James Loriega both prefer the Neaderthal method (- smash ) - my technique is more aligned with tip control and finesse - like using a rapier. The Ancient Art of the Sjambok http://www.cafepress.com/meijin3.651778457

Sorry - more explanation needed; where Lynn rips apart 1/4 in. thick plywood cut-outs, and destroys pumpkins, hardboiled eggs and watermelons (see the video online at the link above) - my methods would remove a seed from the edge of a strawbeery and leave the strawberry standing otherwise unharmed. I'm just not a big fan of using excess force to accomplish the same result. All three of us really like the sjambok!
