Nothing says luxury quite like the No.1 Alligator Flyswatter. This flyswatter comes from Col. Littleton, "A Purveyor of Fine Accouterments in the American Tradition."

If everything is better in America, this bug slapper makes perfect sense as it is made of "American Alligator backed with calfskin." The swatter has 31 holes and has a lanyard made of American leather. The entire piece measures 20 1/2 inches and comes with a small engraved plaque mounted onto the head. The plaque is made of nickel silver and has room for three initials on it. The design of this swatter is extravagant to say the least, and it has a price to match. If you want to swat flies in luxury prepare to drop $320. No wonder Col. Littleton recommends using this flyswatter for uptown flies only.
