As a mirrored compass, the advantage is that the sighting mechanism allows you to view the object you are taking a bearing to, and simultaneously box the needle in the orienting arrow.
We have carried the Standard version, in the past and decided to offer only this much nicer deluxe, for almost the same price.
This solid brass Brunton compass is 4-inches in diameter and easily folds to fit in your pocket; small and heavy for its size. It is a functional compass and has a lid. Inside the lid is a mirror. On the back of the compass is a sine index.
This solid brass compass comes with solid rosewood box that has the anchor with rope logo embedded into the top. The box is a smooth and polished finish wood.
Weight: 1 pound.
NOTE: same as the deluxe compass in box version, but this standard box has no front clasp on box front. A nice clean look.
