Brass Compass in Leather Pouch

Regular price $47.00 Sale

This compass is a simple, yet functional (but not suitable for serious navigation) compass in highly polished brass, with a leather case. The compass rose is a 32-wind compass.

A compass rose is primarily composed of four cardinal directions; north, east, south, and west with each separated by 90 degrees (shown on numbers), and secondarily divided by four ordinal (intercardinal) directions: northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest, each located halfway between two cardinal directions. Some disciplines such as meteorology and navigation further divide the compass with additional azimuths. Within European tradition, a fully defined compass has 32 "points".

The quarter-winds are (in first quadrant) north by east (NbE), northeast by north (NEbN), northeast by east (NEbE), and east by north (EbN); (in second quadrant) east by south (EbS), southeast by east (SEbE), southeast by south (SEbS), and south by east (SbE); (in third quadrant) south by west (SbW), southwest by south (SWbS), southwest by west (SWbW), and west by south (WbS); (in fourth quadrant) west by north (WbN), northwest by west (NWbW), northwest by north (NWbN), and north by west (NbW).
