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.
