Fully functional brass compass in authentic vintage design

About the product

Discover our unique brass compass in vintage design – a masterpiece that impresses both in form and function. This precise navigation instrument is not only fully operational but also an aesthetic gem. The foldable inner lid features the inspiring travel quote: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." A wise reminder of the importance of forging new paths and expanding one's horizons.

The high-quality compass needle comes with a locking mechanism, ensuring that you always maintain your direction—both literally and metaphorically. On the lid, you will also find an intricate sundial. To read it, the gnomon must be set up, an astonishing detail that highlights the complexity and beauty of this unique accessory.

A versatile gift for adventurers and dreamers, the compass not only symbolizes the urge to travel but also the ability to find the right direction in life. Its pleasing weight adds not only value but also makes it useful as a stylish paperweight. Whether you are planning your next big adventure or adding a touch of adventure to your desk, this brass compass is a true eye-catcher that appeals to both the soul and practicality.

Our story

We are Daniel and Christoph and live our dream. We founded DRAKENSBERG because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it.

To understand the path as the true goal and to grow on it. A good journey means learning. About life and about yourself. We know that a good journey can change a whole life. Our travel bags are silent reminders of the travel spirit of the 19th and 20th century, when traveling was still an adventure and travelers were adventurers.


Our products are almost entirely handmade in many individual steps.

We place value on natural and high-quality materials, paying attention to sustainability and the environment. GENUINE BUFFALO LEATHER, high material thickness, and a complete absence of plastic fibers in our outer fabrics distinguish our items. Handmade premium quality that you can feel!

Leather is a natural material and may have minor irregularities. Each leather product is also hand-patinated. This elaborate process makes our products unique. Therefore, no bag can be exactly like another. Slight color variations are unavoidable and not a sign of poor quality.
