We did some breakage tests with Kirinite™ samples and found the material to be far stronger than the resin we were using in our Khalsa Blue Kirpans. The Kirinite™ is also more uniform in finish than the black micarta (cloth based phenolic resin) and G10 we've been able to obtain and have been using. So we've decided to change to this new beautiful and ultra-durable resin and are now offering it in 3 exquisite colors (Sapphire, Ruby and Midnight Blue).
We recently visited with our Kirpan maker and developed something new and exciting. We are very enthused to be able to offer you exceptional artwork that is laser engraved on both sides of the metal fittings of these Kirpans. Patterned after our much more expensive hand engraving, the laser engraving adds an element of beauty that we have not been able to offer so affordably. For only $95 you can decorate a large or compact Kirpan! This also includes a stylized Ekongkar symbol (representing 'one creator of the creation') on the tip of the scabbard. These are shipping in Midnight Blue color only and we should have the Ruby and Sapphire Kirinite™ laser engraved Kirpans in April 2017 sometime. Click the 2nd drop down menu and select 'laser engraved fittings' to see what you'll be getting or click images to left. This engraved detail is subject to scratching when abraded against any hard surface - wear with care please!

International shipments are sent either by DHL Global Express or International Priority Fedex and arrive normally next day in Canada, 2 days to UK, and less than a week to India and Australia (for example). You will be charged between $40 and $65 for 1 Kirpan, depending on where we are shipping outside of the USA.
Domestic shipments are $21 for 1 Large Kirpan and $14 for 1 Compact Kirpan shipped via USPS Priority Mail and arrive in 2-3 days. All Kirpans are shipped fully insured.
Each Kirpan comes with one perfectly fitted Kirpan strap in 2 choices each of style/color. Black and gray adjustable length straps have a black metal buckle and white and gray adjustable length straps have a white plastic buckle. Adjustable length straps when at their maximum length are the same length as non-adjustable length straps, which are also available in black and gray or white and gray. A gold embroidered zipper pouch and a 16-page color booklet are also included. These Kirpans are sharp. We wonder why you would bother to carry a Kirpan that is not?
Inspirational Blade Etching or Personalization...
We have sacred, inspiring Gurmukhi phrases that can be deeply etched onto the stainless steel blade of your Kirpan(s). It is also possible for us to create any wording and/or design work for your Kirpan blade that you wish. These choices are above in the third drop down menu.
Steel's energies are highly projective and are associated with the planet Mars, so named for the Roman God of war. As such, wearing stainless steel can be a little like donning spiritual armor. If you are looking to protect yourself from aggressive advances or any forms of extreme negativity, stainless steel is a good option. Having, wearing or keeping steel close at hand, can offer one strength, courage, grit and determination.
Kirinnite™ is a man-made material. These Kirpans if dropped or subject to forceful impact with very hard surfaces (concrete, stone, metal, etc.) may chip and this is not-likely and it could happen. As with all of our kirpans, such damage is not covered under our existing warranty, and in most cases repairs can be made through Khalsa Kirpans at extra cost.
