About Silva
In 1933 Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid filled compass. The liquid reduced the time needed to take a bearing and protractor baseplate improved bearing accuracy. Their invention made it faster and easier to use and read the compass. With the launch of their first headlamp two years later the Silva company was born.
