Like throngs of others, this June you may find yourself struggling to find that perfect gift for the important “dads” in your life, whether that be your own father, husband, boyfriend, brother or other deserving and meaningful man. While the overarching gesture of giving—recognition and appreciation for a job being well done—is most important, there are certainly a myriad of gift ideas sure to evoke genuine joy and certainly gratitude. Here are a few gift ideas that I like this season.

Cardinal Compass  

There is nothing I love more than an heirloom gift—something that can be cherished now and then passed down through the generations—and for that I adore Cardinal Compass. This modern working compass can be custom-engraved to become the perfect symbolic gift for any life milestone…or serve as a handsome gift just because. A compass can symbolize following your life’s path and staying on course, while also inspiring by making clear which way is north. Made from solid stainless steel with a gold-plated coordinate ring, the Cardinal Compass is handcrafted with the finest quality to ensure it can stand the test of time. Each compass includes personalized laser engraving and a premium gift box to make it a touching gift for Father’s Day or any other occasion or event like baptism/christenings, milestone birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations and even as a memento to memorialize someone who has passed. The Cardinal Compass has brought back the age-old art of compass making, crafted out of solid stainless steel that is polished to a mirror finish. With a gold-plated coordinate ring, the Cardinal Compass was designed to provide a timeless shine. Each compass is lovingly hand assembled and made to order. With a portion of each sale going to charity, each compass also gives back by helping a former inmate find their way back into society. www.cardinalcompass.ca

Syosaku Japanese Multi-Purpose Chef Knife

The Syosaku Japanese multi-purpose chef kitchen knife is the perfect gift for kitchen-driven Dads this Father’s Day. Handcrafted in Sakai, Japan, where more than 90 percent of Japanese professional chef knives are produced, each is crafted one at a time manually by highly skilled Japanese master artisans. It outperforms industrially mass-produced products from every aspect. The master craftsmanship shines through in every single product. Ready to use out of the box with ruthless sharpness, the core is the newly developed high carbon stainless steel ZA18 (HRC 62-63) produced in Japan, which is extremely durable. Combined with 69-layer clad Damascus construction, it gives exceptional sharpness, edge retention, durability and ease of sharpening at the same time. You can easily feel your upgraded technique level just by using a Syosaku Knife. But make sure Dad knowns to hand wash only and regularly sharpen on quality whetstones. Ideal for everyday chef handling daily kitchen tasks, whether professional or      non-professional, Dad can cut, dice, slice, mince and chop with one knife. It is double-edged, so it doesn’t matter what hand is used. The high chromium content of the ZA18 alloy combined with the outer Damascus steel realizes extreme stain and corrosion resistance. The material used for the handle is taken from center core of Walnut tree, which is water-resistant and     non-slip. The ergonomically designed octagonal handle and perfectly balanced construction make using it comfortable, even for long-time use. An exquisite outer steel eliminates friction and keeps food from sticking. The Japanese-style Walnut wood handle with a beautiful Water Buffalo Horn bolster (color may vary) adds more visual accents. High carbon content combined with special production techniques gives exceptional hardness (HRC 62-63) to the core. The hardness allows the thinner blade edge, resulting in razor sharpness. www.Syosaku-Japan.com
