Care & Instructions

Cleaning Method

  • For brass compass care, dust with a soft cloth. Use brass cleaner for tarnish, gently polishing and buffing to shine. Avoid abrasives to prevent scratches.


  • Store your compass in a dry place to prevent corrosion or tarnishing. Brass is resistant to moisture, but prolonged exposure can affect its appearance and the compass's functionality.

Avoiding Chemicals

  • Keep the compass away from harsh chemicals and alcohol, which can damage the brass finish and potentially interfere with the compass's magnetic accuracy.

Note: Given its handcrafted nature, treat your compass with extra care to maintain its craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal.

  • Compasses, including sundials and Brunton compasses, are navigational tools used for orientation, land navigation, and measuring angles of the sun. Sundials track time using the sun's position, while Brunton compasses are favored by geologists for precision in fieldwork.
