Silva Expedition 4 handmade leather compass case
Materials: Leather, Waxed linen thread
A mountain guide friend of mine (http://ukmountainleader.co.uk) popped by for a chat the other day and as he was leaving he asked if I could make a case,for his Silva Expedition 4 compass. Any climber or hill walker will know all about the compass. They will also know that they are easily damaged and easy to drop when wet and slippery.
This case serves two main functions, it protects the compass when not in use and, crucially, allows one,to use it without removing it from the case. The compass remains fully functional in the case and one only needs to open the cover!
There is a hole that allows use of the lubber line for navigation. The lanyard passes through another hole and the cover is closed by passing it under the sewn leather strap. No metallic parts are used as they would interfere with the compass.
These cases take a while to make to order and can be supplied in tan, brown or black stain, please specify on ordering.
I am pleased to be able to offer coloured stitching to add a little extra something to your case. Threads currently available are Blue, Yellow and Red, as well as the traditional waxed linen of course. No extra charge for this :). If you would like coloured thread please specify when ordering.
Like all my items they are made from top quality veg tanned shoulder and are hand sewn with waxed linen thread or waxed polyester (coloured), with care they should last a lifetime.

Good quality case with nice coloring.
I love this eyepatch. I recently lost vision in my left eye and was looking for a nice fitting, not overly large patch. This is quality construction and quick delivery (about 10 days total but he's making it in UK and shipping to US). Steve was very courteous and quick to respond to questions. Great transaction. Thank you!
I had an eye operation which required me to wear a patch for a while after, so went for this. Really pleased with it, well made and comfortable, plus it goes beautifully with my early Anglo-Saxon reenactment outfit. A touch of Woden!
The eye patch was excellent. Steve knows what he’s doing. He improved on my request and produced a stylish, comfortable patch for a reasonable price. Postage was prompt. I have already ordered a similar patch. Look no further, you won’t find a superior product. Five stars.
