Testimonial from the owner of this Kirpan:
When one considers the commissioning of a Kirpaan, it is not as simple as opening a catalogue and ordering an item or going to a market stall and buying it off a shelf. A Kirpaan is a treasured 'kakaar' (one of the 5K's all devout Sikhs keep) that deserves the utmost respect as ordained by our Dhan Guru Gobind singh ji. A Kirpaan is not just a dagger, the spiritual and emotional essence of bhagti must be embodied into the metal whilst it's been skillfully crafted. Once you meet Jot Singh ji, you instantly sense the peaceful spirit within him, here is a soul that has truly meditated and is in peace. Only a spiritual soul can incorporate essence of bhagti through his hands. This is akin to the panj pyare who are spiritual souls/Sikhs, when they prepare the Amrit their bhagti and paat is incorporated within the sugar & water mixture to make Amrit. Why then should a Sikh of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who has taken Amrit, have a dagger from a market stall, fashioned crudely and wholly inferior, when they could have a master crafted kirpaan fashioned by a Gursikh like Jot Singh: would guru Gobind Singh ji or his Khalsa expect anything less? so one must then ask the question 'would my Guru or his beloved sikhs buy a crude 'kirpaan' from a shelf in a market place?' In my humble oppinion, these are poorly manufactured dagger shaped crudities mascarading as a Kirpaan, sold to the masses.
A kirpaan is in constant contact with the Gursikh, 24 hours a day 365 days a week, it can be passed on as a deserved gift to an honourable Gursikh. It is also an heirloom for generations ahead.
Everytime I see my Kirpaan, I sense the sheer magnificence and beauty it bestows, it's elegance and quality astound me still today: I feel blessed to behold a true kirpaan.
