The Boatswain's Pipe (pron"bosun's) is one of the oldest and most distinctive pieces of nautical equipment.  The boatswain's pipe, or flute, was used in Greece and Rome to keep the stroke of galley slaves.  The pipe was used in the Crusades to call English cross bowmen on deck for attack.  Because it's shrill tune could be heard above most of the activity on board, it later was used to signal various happenings such as knock-off and the boarding of officials.  This signaling device was so essential to the well-being of the ship that it became a badge of office and honor in the British and American Navy of the sailing ships.

This whistle comes with a wooden case that can have a custom plate mounted to the inside lid for only $11.
