Compact Kirpans have 3 inch/7.6cm blades and an overall length including handle of 5.75 inches/14.6cm. Each Compact kirpan package comes with 1 Kirpan in the 'micarta' color of your choice (micarta is a durable and beautiful phenolic resin impregnated into layers of cloth, canvas or paper): Mahogany (brown), Ebony (black) or Ivory*.

*Different than the black, maroon and brown micartas we use, ivory is not available in linen or canvas, and comes in "paper" based material. This is a very handsome handle/sheath material (akin to real ivory in appearance) yet may be more susceptible to chipping or cracking upon forceful impact with very hard surfaces (concrete, stone, metal, etc.) As with all of our kirpans, such damage is not covered under our existing warranty, but in many cases repairs can be made through or by Khalsa Kirpans at extra cost. Over the years, ivory micarta may also yellow some - a phenomenon not uncommon with contemporary and ancient "tusk" ivories.
