North Compass

Visual solution

What does your design show?

The design shows one of the most beautiful things when you are outdoor: stars.

What is the unique idea about your design?

Victorinox knife is one the most useful items when you go outdoor in the mountains. It became even more useful if you can use at night orienting and in this case, looking for the North.

Is there a special story behind your design?

Most of the people does not know how to orient without a compass, using the stars. This design shows how you can find the North if you do not have a compass. Once you find the Ursa Major constellation (only in the north hemisphere), you can virtually take the last two outermost stars of the "cup", form a straight line that "points" to the Polaris, which is in the Ursa Minor constellation. The Polaris star tell you the North.
