One of the oldest and most distinctive pieces of nautical equipment is the Boatswain's Pipe (pronounced "bosun's").  In Greece and Rome the boatswain's pipe, or flute, was used to keep the stroke of galley slaves.  The Crusaders used the pipe to call English cross bowmen on deck for attack.  Later on, it was used to signal different events such as knock-off and the boarding of officials due to its shrill tune that could be heard above most of the activity on board.  This signaling device was so crucial to the well-being of the ship that in the British and American Navy it became a badge of office and honor.
We offer several models of quality Boatswain's Pipes and yes, they really whistle.  Our Silver Plated British Boatswain's Pipe is 5 inches (12.7 cm) long and comes complete with a 40-inch (1 meter) chain, and weighs 1.9 ounces (54 grams).  The Silver Plated Boatswain's Pipe has a handsome naval emblem on one side and the other side is plain.  Our Gold Plated British Boatswain's Pipe is 5 inches (12.7 cm) long and comes complete with a 39.5-inch chain, and weighs 1.9 ounces (53 grams).   The Gold Plated Boatswain's Pipe also has the same naval emblem on one side and the other side is plain. 
We also offer a beautifully detailed solid brass and copper reproduction of a boatswain's pipe, on a quality 35 inch (89 cm) brass chain lanyard.  The pipe has a traditional anchor design on both sides.  The boatswain's pipe measures 4 7/8 inches (12.4 cm) long, and the pipe and chain weigh 1.4 ounces (40 grams).  Our Silver Plated Boatswain's Pipe measures 4 7/8 inches (12.4 cm) long, and comes complete with a 35 inch (89cm) chain.  The pipe has a traditional anchor design on both sides. The Silver Plated Traditional Boatswain's pipe with chain weighs 1.4 ounces (40 grams). 
We have an optional, beautiful solid hardwood felt lined storage and display case for either boatswain's pipe.  The lid of the case features an inlaid solid brass Navy anchor design.  Custom brass plaques are available to be mounted on the case and they start at only $10.  A one line plaque with a person's name can be mounted on the front of the case, or a plaque with up to four lines of text can be mounted on top covering the inlaid anchor design.  Sorry but we do not engrave directly on the boatswain's pipes.  Custom engraving usually does not delay the shipping of your order and our engraving and shipping status is updated hourly:
