The Hampton Nautical Boatswain's Pipe (pronounced "bosun's") is one of the oldest and most distinctive pieces of nautical equipment. The boatswain's pipe, whistle, or flute, was used in Greece and Rome to keep the stroke of galley slaves.

With a traditional anchor design inlaid on both sides, this fully functional boatswain's pipe measures 5 inches (12.7 cm) long, and weighs at 1.6 ounces (45 grams) including the chain.
