“If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known.”

The “vegvisir” was a kind of runic compass. It was a Viking rune stave, a magical device used to aid in sea navigation. According to several legends, this protective symbol was inscribed on seagoing vessels to insure their safe return. The most common depiction of the rune Compass comes from the 17th century Galdrabok, an Icelandic Grimoire.

The Nørding MacArthur tobacco smoking pipe is a Danish interpretation of the Poker pipe made in a combination of quality Briar wood and gunmetal coloured Aluminum for the shank. With the 17mm chimney tobacco chamber the pipe is an excellent smoke and will quickly become one of your most cherished pipes. A Churchwarden shank and stem can be fitted for a slightly cooler smoke because this pipe comes with two stems. All compass pipes are delivered with a grey bag with the Compass symbol. The MacArthur Compass Tobacco Pipe pays homage to one of the most iconic pipe smokers of the 20th Century.
