Tradewinds Compass

This useable pocket compass is perfect for the seafarer in your life or the nautical collector. It has beautiful detailing and is priced right for gift giving.

The compass opened the world to exploration and discovery. Invented in China thousands of years ago, it was primarily used by feng-shui priests, hired to advise on how and where to build. Today the compass still is a basic tool, a magnetized needle rotating on a vertical pin, pointing at the Earth’s magnetic North. 16th century sailors accustomed to following coastlines, could suddenly cross oceans.
