The Kasper & Richter K-1L Map Compass differs from many compasses in a key way – its azimuth scale has no bezel, just a transparent plastic dial with the scale inside. That allows you to see the scale right on your map, with no bezel interrupting the view. The K1-L features a 360° scale with 2° resolution and the K&R thermo-elastic fluid-filled capsule, which resists cracking and flexes with temperature changes to prevent bubbles.
The needle features a luminous tip for easy reading in low light and a magnifying lens for picking up the smallest details on your maps. Rulers are provided for 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 scale maps, along with a centimeter ruler down the right side of the baseplate. A quick-release lanyard is provided.
