High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Nagyka, nagaika, or
nagayka (Russian: pronounced [n ajk ]) is a short, thick whip with
round cross-section used by Cossacks of Russia, borrowed from Nogai
people, hence the original name "nogaika," or "Nogai's whip." It is
also called, kamcha from the Turkic word "kamci" for "whip." The
latter word is also used for short whips of Central Asian origin.
The nagyka was made out of leather strips by braiding. Some nagykas
had a piece of metal at the tip of the whip. The main purpose of a
nagyka was to urge a horse. A metal piece was used for defense
against wolves. According to Vladimir Dahl's dictionary, this
nagayka was called volkoboy (, "wolf-killer"). It was also used as
a weapon in combat when other weapons were not available. Nagaykas
were never listed among the weaponry, at the same time there
existed a traditional form of hunting, when the chased animal (fox,
wolf, etc.) was killed by a nagyka.
