Compasses, Sextants & Telescopes

Have you lost your way? Have no fear, because Dark Knight Armoury has a wider assortment of various navigational tools that will put you back on the right path! And not only will they show you the way you seek, but once you are done using them, they will also make for fantastic display pieces to show off in your own home as traditional nautical decor. Here, we offer a selection of compasses, sextants, and telescopes for you to choose from, many of which are perfect for helping you find your way when you are lost at sea, assuming, of course, that you are lost in how to decorate with great nautical style, and that sea is a jumble of ideas. Compasses are small in size and are perfect for a wide assortment of uses. The portable ones make for great costume pieces, and even when they are not at your side, they are a great little trinket to leave in their box as a decoration. And the static compasses possess a nautical style that is difficult to rival. Spyglasses and telescopes are equally worth considering, as spyglasses, like compasses, are great as hand-held accessories, while our telescopes are a bit bigger but still make for a great permanent fixture in any room. The best part is that all of our compasses and telescopes and spyglasses are fully functional! This means that if you want a compass to tell you the way, ours will point north and help you find your directions, while our telescopes and spyglasses will bring distant sights easily into view for you to observe and scrutinize. We also offer a number of other nautical navigational pieces, including things like sextants and dumpies, which were used by sailors to find their way across the seas in times both past and present. However, we should point out that while our sextants and other navigational tools are functional, they are not properly calibrated for use, which means that while they do work, they are not suited for use in actual navigational tasks. It does not matter if you have lost your way, because at Dark Knight Armoury, we have all the compasses, sextants, and telescopes that you will need to help you find your way, whether you are lost at sea or lost trying to create the perfect nautical decor.
