Limited Introduction From Surplus
Very nice SERE/button type compass. The brass construction combined with the fact that it's a dry compass makes it a winner for me. Very smooth, and settles fast with very little wobble for such a small compass. Tested, perhaps unfairly, against a Brunton TruArc3. Points North. Fits vertically inside the 21700 Delrin Battery Locker with room to spare.
Does what is supposed to small but lightweight functional appears durable
I had one similar to this way back in the 1980's. I was in the infantry and used a military lensatic compass, but I always had a back up. This was before the days of GPS and we used our compasses every time we went out. Now I can't even hike without one. It's my crutch and I have to have it! This little compass works just fine and weighs next to nothing. I keep one in my daypack for long day hikes just in case.
Great compact compass, very accurate. Great gift for SIL
Using mine on a leather necklace, as I guess you can call, "jewelry". But aside from looking really nice, there is the added bonus of it being a fully functional and accurate compass.
