'Kirpan' /keér pahn/ literally means 'hand of mercy.' It is a Punjabi (Indian) word for 'knife' or 'dagger', that connotes a philosophy of respect for the martial arts and weapons, not as vehicles of aggression, but as a means of defending the defenseless.
My name is Jot Singh Khalsa . Since 1978, I've been creating unique edged tools and weapons for enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. My knives, swords and Kirpans have been featured on book covers, magazine covers, in museum exhibitions and in print media published in nine languages. They are award winners at knife shows throughout the USA and in Europe.
Currently, I offer my work for sale at one or two knife shows in the USA, through dealers and retailers all over the world and this website. Pieces like any of those you see here can be created on request and some are available for immediate purchase.
It is with great pleasure that I present to you the finest in hand crafted edged implements. Please contact us with any project you envision or with questions you might have.
