This compass key-chain is a thoughtful gift of thanks to unwavering friend, or encouragement to stay the course.
A compass workshop in India called Vertex evolved from a group of craftsmen who originally made surveying equipment for some of the earliest canals in the region.
Makers have adapted their designs to meet the needs of a changing market, but have held true to their craftsmanship skills.
Perfect gift for the intrepid explorer, steampunk or role player in us all! Great Novelty Piece.
Made of brass, this compass piece is fair trade and handmade. This tool shows the directions north, south, east and west, and has a magnetic needle, which always points north because of Earth's magnetic field, or force that pulls.
Compasses were first invented by the Chinese in the 1100s and were used for navigation for ships and deciding where to build cities.
