The Boatswain's Pipe (pronounced "bosun's") is considered one of the oldest and most distinctive pieces of nautical equipment.  The boatswain's pipe, also known as a whistle or flute, was used in Greece and Rome to keep the stroke of galley slaves.  During the Crusades the pipe was used 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 the activity on board.  This signaling device was so vital to the well-being of the ship that it became a badge of office and honor on the sailing ships in the British and American Navy.
This beautifully detailed solid brass and copper Navy Boatswain's Pipe includes a quality 39 inch (99 cm) solid brass chain lanyard.  Both sides of the pipe have a traditional anchor design inlaid in copper.  The boatswain's pipe measures 5 inches (12.7 cm) long, and the pipe and chain weigh 1.6 ounces (45 grams), and yes, it really whistles.
The boatswain's pipe is accompanied by a beautiful solid hardwood felt lined storage and display case.  The lid of the case has an inlaid solid brass Navy anchor design.  Custom brass plaques start at only $10 and can be mounted on the case.  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.  Usually custom engraving does not delay the shipping of your order.  Our engraving and shipping status is updated hourly:
