We needed extra security to get the Purple low whistles back from the anodisers without loosing a few to anyone with sticky fingers. Everyone who saw them had something to say. It’s probably true purple isn’t everyone’s cup to tea … but whichever way, it seems you’ll still stand back and marvel at these.
When I checked the to see who had placed an advance order for one I found that the waiting list stretched back to 2007! making it the longest anyone has had to wait for an MK Whistle (not including the keys we aren’t making)
The question however is are they here to stay? The Blue Low Ds were run as a limited edition about this time last year, and we haven’t done any since, despite occasional enquiries. From my point of view keeping even three colours (red, green & black) in stock in quite a challenge, but these more exotic colours (the red, blue and purple particularly) do have something special about them – an extra magic. Sometimes one comes off the workbench and I just stand there looking at it. Even before it’s first breath it’s singing, and I languish for a few seconds before going back to filing, cutting, setting, gluing, etc etc.
What do you think? should purple stay?
