The Special from K&R offers a mils scale (in addition to the standard azimuth scale) compass in more traditional hiking compass design with rotating bezel -- as compared to a military lensatic compass. The mils scale (0-6400 mils) features 100 mil resolution, while the azimuth scale (0-360 degrees) features 5 degree resolution.
And like many other K&R compasses this compass is equipped with both an unbreakable solid metal mirror and a thermo-elastic compass capsule. K&R's thermo-elastic capsule is flexible, not brittle. This accomplishes two things: 1) the capsule flexes with temperature changes to keep out bubbles, and 2) the capsule doesn't develop leaking hairline cracks when you drop it (or step on it). Other features include luminous points, cm and inch rulers, and a sighting hole in the base of the mirror lid.
Each Special MILS Hiking Compass comes complete with a comfortably wide reflective neck lanyard with a quick-release buckle. Kasper & Richter has been manufacturing precision instruments in Germany since 1920.
