This is the best kirpan you can buy and for a fair price no less. And importantly, it is battle ready! Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh"

I knew I was getting a high quality Kirpan but the weight, the feel, the craftsmanship is incredible. Maharaj has truly given you a gift and you are using it in the best way.

"Jot Singh ji, This is the Kirpan that I have been waiting for a very long time. It excels in all areas of design, craftsmanship, materials, appearance and when held in hand, excellent balance of the blade itself. The most amazing is the fit if the Blade in the Scabbard. With an equally exquisite "Gatra", this kirpan is truly the one that I will love to wear and have by my side as one of the 5K's."

The World's Finest Kirpans in durable and handsome micarta 

For decades Sikhs all over the world requested us to make a handsome and practical kirpan they could be proud to own and wear that would be afforable - more affordable than what's in the 'Gallery' on this website. We have worked diligently since 2007 to design kirpans we believe to be among the finest ever created. These are being entirley handmade to precise tolerances, using the choicest materials available, by a very respected and in high-demand manufacturer. We have them in stock and you can pay for one or several for yourself and loved ones now. These Kirpans are sharp. We wonder why you would bother to carry a Kirpan that is not?

The 6 inch/15.2cm blade (11.75inch/29.8cm overall length, including handle) Large Kirpans are shipping in ivory* and ebony (black) micarta. Micarta is a very durable and handsome man-made material. The Kirpan and scabbard total weight is approximately 1.25 lbs./.57kg. 

The smaller 3 inch/7.6cm blade (5.75 inch/14.6cm overall length including handle) Compact Kirpans with a slightly different handle design than the large size are also shipping in black (ebony) and ivory* micarta.

Sarb Loh

There is likely little doubt that over 300 years ago when the 10th Master’s presence graced the earth and he led Sikhs and others into necessary battle, that Sarb Loh (pure iron) was the preferred blade material for Kirpans and possibly swords that might have seen duty in the protection of oneself and the innocent. I expect those Kirpans and swords made from Sarb Loh would have had good edge holding and strength characteristics, when properly hardened and tempered.

Since 1978, when I began my career as a professional knife, sword and Kirpan maker, I've had numerous inquiries along the lines of: 'Do you offer Sarb Loh in your Kirpans?’ and if not ‘Why don't you use it in your blades? This is what Guru Gobind Singh preferred and told us to use.’

The facts are, through modem technologies today, we have far more uniform options for sharpness, toughness and especially rust resistance in contemporary blade steels. Through industrial and technological developments in metallurgy over the last 100 years, there are now a wealth of choices in the marketplace for exceptional cutlery steels. We utilize a number of those in our manufacturing and offer them through Khalsa Kirpans.

Even if we could find Sarb Loh being made somewhere in the world today, I'm not sure we'd offer it because of all the other readily available excellent choices.

* - 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.
