This is a great whistle very similar to many whistles available from places like REI or Eastern Mountain Sports. Its is compact, since rather than using a cork ball, it simply uses air. It is cheap and only requires a bic pen. It also makes a great addition to survival kits, such as the Altoid Survival Kits found on Instructables. (See link.) This is my first instructable, so I decided to start with something simple. Please drop me a comment.

(Note: This is a very loud whistle and a knife is used to make it. I am not responsible for any injury caused by using this whistle)

Thanks! I've been looking at putting things in a little kit and didn't want to spend much, and I hadn't thought about this idea. So great!
If you've played the flute before, you would know that you could play some simple tunes on it by tipping it forward and back.&nbsp; You could also do this with a pen cap, empty lip balm tube or even a short, fat drinking straw.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> I hadn't thought of using a pen as a whistle in an emergency.&nbsp; Nice McGyvering, there.<br />
