No, this compass does not have the precision German machine detailing of the $150 K&R model. For example, on the K&R compass the bezel (the part you turn) is machined, but on this compass it is cast metal. But the build quality of this $14 compass is surprisingly good - as in, way better than I expected.
If you are looking for a direct sighting compass with 1 degree (or better) accuracy, that is quick to use and virtually foolproof, this is the bargain of the decade.
It does NOT have declination compensation, but then neither does the K&R model for $150.
As the other reviewer noted, the luminance is poor. But the reality is that if it is so dark that you need luminance, then it is also too dark to use a sighting compass anyway - so what's the point?
Is it accurate? - absolutely. Durable? - yes. Would I bank my life on it as my only compass out in the wilderness? - not a chance. Is it a great compass for taking bearings on a family camping trip? - Perfect.
For the price, this is an astounding compass.
Reading earlier reviews, it's clear that this product has gone through several iterations, paint colors, etc. It seems that the product has been modified over time to make it more appealing to the consumer, as many products are. There is nothing wrong with a product evolving and becoming better. The compass shipped to me has a "thumb ring" or lanyard ring mounted near the hinge, which accomplishes four things:
1. It can be used as a thumb ring, if you have very very small thumbs.
2. You can attach a lanyard to it, to tether the compass to its case or yourself.
3. It prevents the compass from opening fully
4. It prevents the compass from sitting level on a flat surface, for instance a map.
I chose the example of the thumb/lanyard loop/ring because it illustrates the central theme of this product; copies of good things are not always good copies. Or to put it bluntly, folks who know jack about compasses have no business building compasses. Adding features that prevent the compass from being used for its primary purpose are not improvements, they're un-improvements. A compass that won't sit flat on a map is not useful for navigation. You can shoot a bearing, you can follow a heading, but if you can't communicate that data to the map, you're not navigating, you're guessing. You could cut the stupid thumb ring off,like I did.
A few more points leading up to my thesis-
A. This is not a prismatic compass, as it lacks a prism.Read more ›
I made image scans of the booklet that came with it, because the print is very small and somewhat hard to read. Figured the scans might come in handy for others as well, and also to show the compass' functions.
An excellent compass for the very low price.
