These unique and rustic compasses are handmade from stunning diamond willow wood. No two are alike! Diamond willow has deep rich color and lots of variations, knots, and grain character. Our pocket sized compass is perfect for hiking or gift giving. Strap one to your backpack or carry in your pocket for luck, they can take it. 

Each diamond willow compass is handmade in New Hampshire by John Arnold, a craftsman of hand carved canes and walking sticks. Before the diamond willow becomes a compass, John sands each piece multiple times and coats them three times with marine grade polyurethane.

Compasses are somewhat round and will have a diameter of about 1.25" to 2", the thickness will vary from roughly .5" to .75". Again, no two are alike. Each compass will include a brown leather strap.

I received my compass today and now my husband wants one. Will you be getting more

The woodcarver who makes these can no longer get diamond willow. Next January we will have compasses again, but made from burled walnut or another special wood.

Well, I purchased one of these and reported that I wasn't too happy with it. A reply from an Almanac staff member asked me to send an email requesting a replacement/refund. I sent the email requesting a replacement and got an almost immediate reply stating that they would send me a new one. I impressed with their excellent customer service.

I ordered one of these for my Boy Scout grandson as a stocking stuffer. It is tiny and not very accurate as it gets stuck a lot. This is a disappointment.

Sounds like you got a bad one. These are handmade and no two are exactly the same. Please shoot an email to alanh@yankeepub.com and we'll be happy to refund you or send out another or both.

As a scientist and nature lover, I look forward to being able to purchase several willow wood compasses for the Lawrence Nature Center in NJ. We have many programs with scouts and families; they will make perfect gifts :) How soon will they become available?

I have given my church pastor one of these compasses. Now I want to give them to our church children. They are really VERY nice, and I look forward to the time that they will again become available.
