Product Description

BRASS MILITARY NAVAL SURPLUS BOSUN WHISTLEThis is a brass gold colored whistle or Bosuns or Boatswains pipe. It is typically used to pipe sailors on and off ships call everyone for chow etc. Bosun mates today continue to use these pipes in our modern Navy. This Bosun Pipe comes with a beautiful long brass colored chain. It is a working traditional boating and sailing whistle. It contains a small hole in the whistle to run the chain through. Standard military size. Fits in you pocket. Brass boatswains whistle. Packed with care by US Military Veterans and delivered to your door.The history of the boatswains pipe dates back to the days of the Crusades. Use it now to call your children in or your dog. A real great survival whistle capable of being heard over a mile away. Anyone can easily blow load and shrill with no practice. Great for calling dogs.The Bosun mate on the ship would use his pipe to whistle to the crew on the ship telling them what to do.  On a ship at sea it was an ideal way to communicate the captains whishes to the rest of the crew without yelling.  To the crews ear the boatswains pipe sounded sweet or harsh depending on how its blown and on what the occasion is. When chow is piped for instance it has the melodic quality of a sweet inviting symphony while turn to (at five a. m.) has a maddening screech. The brass pipe is played by manipulating the hands modulating the breath and trilling the tongueWith the stem in the mouth cup your hands over the round bowl. The call is made with the hand either open closed curved or clinched. The clenched hand needs a good hard blow and makes a high beep shrill enough to be heard over the splitting roar of a five-inch gun. The extraordinary carrying quality of the pipe was of course the original reason for its use at sea.

I was a lifeguard for a very long time, so i know my whistles. This isn't one I'd use for the pool. I bought it for safety reasons, camping, etc. I've also found it handy in calling my 4 kids home! The volume and pitch on this thing is incredible and EASY to CONTROL. Loud or soft, high or low...i'm able to control the sound with little effort, for a wide range of noise and a wide range of uses! highly recommended.

I'm going to tell you a little story, true story at that.
So my wife and family have always thought my preparedness efforts were a lil bit kooky, and when this showed up in the mail the week before we celebrated the 4th of July at the lake they were giving me a hard time about buying a whistle to keep in my EDC bag aka murse.... well we get to the lake and prepare to head out in a friends boat to watch fireworks, 4 adults and 6 kids. The lake is big and choppy and it is known for the HUGE boats on it due to the size of the lake. We get almost to the other side to watch fireworks and my buddy says he's low on gas but should have enough to make it back no problem, we get to the cove watch the firework display and start to head back. We get about half the way back in total darkness with 30-40 foot yachts and speedboats going 50 mph past us and then it happens.... we run completely out of gas! well everyone starts freaking out, we are in a small boat getting tossed around by all the wake and chop of everyone else's boat so everyone starts yelling and screaming to get someone's attention to no avail, I suddenly remember I stuck this whistle in my pocket before we took off and grab it and start blowing, it only took 2-3 blasts before a boat pulled up to help, one of the guys said "whoever thought to bring a whistle did a good job cause that's the only reason we heard you and turned around" well they towed us to the gas station and all was good but had it not been for this whistle it could have turned out much different, bottom line I'm glad I had it and so were all the skeptics of being prepared!

I have the Jet Scream whistles in my car kits and they are loud but this whistle hurts your ears when you blow it and you can really put some air through it and make it SUPER LOUD!!

The correct way to blow this whistle is to hold it with your teeth so you can plug both of your ears with your fingers and let it go! WOW what a whitsle. I have it attatched to my EDC bag it is a little big but doesn't weigh anything really.

If you want a loud safety whistle this is the one for sure!!!

I got this and gave it a good hearty blow, thinking it would be loud. The ear splitting sound made my wife drop something in the other room and the dog two houses down start barking. It took time to get my hearing back afterward. Very very loud.

When even the negative review attests to the volume of this whistle ["It gives me a headache"], you know that you can stop your search for the best emergency whistle! The Storm Whistle is not only the loudest, it's made in the USA by a not-for-proft industry which provides employment opportunities to those with disabilities. I keep one on my PFD, one in my Camelbak, and one in the survival backpack. For survival use I have a pair of ear plugs packaged with the whistle--so I won't be deaf when help arrives!

The STORM Whistle is loud, VERY loud! When I blow this whistle, it is loud and shrill in my own ears! Therefore, I know it's definitely heard by others! It would be nice to have some type of "extension" piece that attaches to the whistle; that way, when blown, the loud and shrill sound is emitted a small distance AWAY from your own ears! Nonetheless, everyone should keep a whistle (like the STORM) in their vehicles (in case of accidents or emergencies!) and children should ALWAYS carry them when going hiking, camping, boating, etc. - especially within areas where they could become "lost." An inexpensive whistle can save lives!

This whistle is very loud! I don't have a decibel meter but you might want to warn others before you blow on this thing to prevent possible ear damage!
