The Silva Starter 123 Compass is the perfect compass for the starting out orienteering enthusiast. If you’re a beginner, the Starter Model 1-2-3 compass is a great tool for working with maps and orienteering. Its base plate is designed especially for children’s smaller hands. The rotating capsule has a 5° dial graduation and clear base plate makes them easier to read a map and plan the course. Inch and millimeter scales are provided for mapping or plotting. Plus, a lanyard hole on the base plate makes for easy carrying. This is a great gift for that special someone who is just starting out in Boy Scouts.
