Our Origin and Story
Khalsa literally means pure one or pure one's - Raj means or represents royal or royalty. For over 40 years now and led by Jot Singh, who adopted Sikhism 50 years ago and was baptized as a Khalsa, we have worked diligently creating 'one of a kind' knives, swords, kirpans, jewelry and artful objects for many throughout the world. We have been privileged to present our swords and kirpans at varied auspicious occasions within and close to the Sikh community in a handful of countries. Several of those stories and presentations are listed just below with links to the pieces and events.
~ Our highly embellished sword presented to Keshgar Sahib Gurdwara in Anandpur Sahib India honoring the 'Birth of the Khalsa' and life and legacy of the 10th Master of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, in April 1999 - here.
~ Our first 'Song of the Khalsa' sword presented to and honoring Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at Parliament Hill, Ottawa Canada in a special Baisakhi service held there - April 2016 - here, We anticipate receiving our initial batch of these excellent, more affordable swords by springtime from a new supplier and are excited about them.

Jot Singh, as a contemporary designer, knifemaker/bladesmith, has also been fortunate to have won numerous awards over decades for his knives/swords/kirpans listed here.
I consider it a gift that the One Creator affords me the presence of mind, the capacity to focus deeply with capable hands as well as the joy and the challenges that arise bringing forth original, inspired, artful and quite functional knives/swords/kirpans and jewelry regularly. I’m deeply grateful to be able to collaborate with gifted artisans, engravers, jewelers and stone setters.
After almost 45 years working at this I’m realizing that I’m more capable than ever been to execute complex and involved projects! I'm also grateful for the steadiness and intuition my daily Japji Sahib/yoga/meditation provide in my 50th year embracing it. And I also recognize that this will not last forever ....
