Prior to the compass, landmarks and celestial positioning determined direction. Sure, now we have google maps but a scout who uses an app at camp loses all credibility. Our compass is solid brass, fully functional and suspended from an aged brass curb chain with lobster claw clasp. Even city folk who have no intention of using it seem to like it cause it’s pretty.
