This is our story.

We brought back the ancient art of compass making to restore it to it's rightful place as a meaningful family heirloom.

We are a husband and wife from Toronto, Canada. With a large extended family, we often found ourselves attending many occasions / celebrations that require meaningful and timeless gifts.

Having struggled to find an item that delivered both the significance and quality that many of those occasions required, we decided to create our own.

We spent months researching century old compass techniques, consulting with compass historians/enthusiasts and scouring the world for the finest components and materials. After nearly two years of development, the Cardinal Compass was born.

We are honored and humbled that the Cardinal Compass has been shipped across the world as a gift for baptisms/christenings, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, as a symbol of guidance and support for those on the road to recovery and even as a sympathy gift to remember a loved one who has passed. Our customers continue to suprise us everyday with unique occassions and engravings for their compass.

By popular demand, we are excited to expand our assortment to include a meaningful selection of memorial gifts.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we have enjoyed developing them for you.
