Thanks to Deejo’s customisable platform—aka MyDeejo—these incredible pocket knives take on singular allure for any given holiday or occasion. For Valentine’s Day, some of the most popular text dedications include “Happy Valentine’s Day, Love (insert name),” “Love You Forever,” and “Forever and Always,” to name just a few. You’re also encouraged to create a special message of your own. Along similar lines, there are over 80 different ‘tattoos’ (i.e. symbolic illustrations) to choose from.
