ATS-34 stainless steel bladed sword with 34"/86cm long curved, hollow ground and satin finished blade. Our solid yellow bronze handle with white bronze inserts featuring sculpted, carved and engraved images of 10th Sikh Master Guru Gobind Singh on one side and a proud and composed lion on the other side have been heavily varnished to keep their lovely 18K gold-like color over many years of handling. The scabbard fittings, also yellow bronze which have been heavily varnished to preserve their rich color, incorporate beautiful hand-engraved panels and 3D Adi Shakti/Khanda (symbol of infinity) on throat and Ekongkar (symbol of One Creator of the creation) on tip - on both sides of those parts. Scabbard is hand carved basswood covered with black leather. A one of a kind piece of art.
A handsome and durable aluminum alloy frame hardcase is included with this sword for storage and travel purposes.
Bronzes are mostly copper. Other alloyed elements are often, but not always, zinc and tin. Copper is known to combat lethargy, passivity, restlessness, excitability and low self-esteem. It stimulates initiative, optimism, diplomacy and independence. Copper provides a harmonic connection between the physical and astral (heavenly) bodies and aligns the subtle body. It opens and activates the sacral chakras, enriching and stabilizing the energies of intuition, sexuality, desire and vitality. It assists one in recognizing barriers which are in the path of ones development.
Stainless Steel's energies are highly projective and it’s associated with the planet Mars, so named for the Roman God of war. As such, wearing stainless steel can be 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, also offers one strength, courage, grit and determination.
