The whip as shown in inventory appears to be most similar to what is known as an Australian stock whip, as seen by the very long handle. This long handle was to grant leverage to the user, allowing for very quick and nimble cracks, oftentimes on horseback as well as allowing the user to hold it on their shoulder whilst riding a horse. Meanwhile, the whip that is used in the players hand in game is more similar to a bullwhip due to its short handle. These were/are mainly used by Americans and Mexicans, their short handle allowing for a heavier whip, and thus louder cracks, although at a slower rate.
The fact that the whip disarms players is likely a reference to Indiana Jones, as Indiana Jones uses a whip to disarm an opponent's gun in the first movie.
