William Henry Pocketknife (www.WilliamHenry.com
William Henry boasts luxury, high-end pocket knives that are ideal for collectors and those who appreciate the finer things in life. There are two in particular that I adore, each sure to become treasured family heirlooms. One is the William Henry Monarch Corsair pocketknife that offers a rugged yet elegantly simple design that fits effortlessly in the hand. The knife frame is hand-carved sterling silver, inlaid with carbon fiber scale. The beautiful blade is incredibly sharp and features William Henry’s signature copper wave damascus steel with a VG-5 steel core. Citrine gemstones, a glassy yellow quartz varietal, is strategically layered throughout the blade and handle to proffer a shiny, bright glow. The Corsair is a gift that surely will be treasured for a lifetime before being handed down to the next generation.

Energydots (www.EnergyDots.com


We live in a world with very high levels of energy interference from the constant exposure to technology. Addressing this is Energydots—a range of self-adhesive “dots” that have been programmed to harmonize the effects of man-made electromagnetic emissions that surround us in our wireless world. They are ultra slim and can be stuck to any non-porous surface, making them extremely versatile and user friendly. EMF’s (electro-magnetic frequencies) from phones, computers, Wi-Fi, etc, all emit low level radiation. An increasing number of people find the constant exposure challenging and experience tiredness, inability to concentrate, headaches and anxiety. The Energydots come in a range of options and purposes, including bioDOT, which boosts energy and reduces stress levels—something Dad will surely appreciate. Each DOT is programmed with a powerful resonant energy signature that retunes energy interference to a natural harmonic state. The body no longer needs to react defensively to emissions from the “harmonized” device and electro-stress is relieved, leaving Dad with more energy for greater health and happiness.
