I hadn't seen that!

Looks like a Sindt/Killarney copy... but they didn't get the memo about the curved blade.

Looks like they've sold nine already!

Seems a pretty good price for an experimental foray into whistlesmithing. And as I happen to have some random metal tubing lying about the workshop...

Last time I tried to make any kind of wind instrument involved an old wooden floor-lamp post, a length of bamboo and some thin brass for a reed. Rather punchy!
