Since the time of the Crusades the boatswain or bosun whistle has been used aboard sailing vessels.

With a bright, crisp tone orders to hoist the sails, and haul in and let out rope were easily conveyed across any ship. This brass keyring whistle is both an important part of history and a useful tool aboard your own ship. Keeping your keys in order as you sail the sea issuing commands to your crew.
At home on your backpack, keys or on the collar of your own nautical uniform; perfect for any sailor of the seven seas.
