The Hampton Nautical Bosuns Pipe is one of the oldest and most distinctive pieces of nautical equipment. The Bosun’s pipe, whistle, or flute, was used in Greece and Rome to keep the stroke of galley slaves.
This beautifully detailed solid brass and copper pipe comes with a quality 39 inch solid brass chain lanyard. The pipe has a traditional anchor design inlaid in copper on both sides, measures 5 inches (12.7 cm) long, and the pipe and chain weigh 1.6 ounces (45 grams), and yes, it really whistles. Comes presented in a beautiful solid hardwood storage and display case. Solid brass and copper – no plastic parts.
