We believe these swords may be among the finest that many of you have ever seen or handled, at a reasonable price.
At the moment 12/2/20, we are completely out of stock. The pandemic has interrupted our supply line. We are still taking orders and anticipate having more stock from new suppliers in approximately 4- 5 months. Those who have placed orders will of course receive their swords in the order in which they were placed with us as soon as they arrive and are inspected.
Thank you for your patience.
Your options appear to the left, once you've selected them from the drop down menus above. These are excellent 440C high carbon stainless steel bladed hardened and tempered swords with 34"/86cm long blades with masterfully hand engraved cupro-nickel handle and scabbard fittings (cupro-nickel is a durable silver color and highly non-tarnish metal).
New options for the handle and scabbard inserts, is to have those parts on both sides of handle and scabbard, to be heavily plated with a PVD/titanium nitride coating which is a lovely gold in color and very durable. The handle contains an Ekongkar (symbol of One Creator of the creation). The scabbard includes a three dimensional Khanda / Adi Shakti Shield (empowering symbol of infinity) on the throat and a sculpted, chiseled, noble lion on the central scabbard panel.
The scabbard is available in royal red or navy blue colors. (We've had regular success spray painting these scabbards another color - we can do that for you for $275 and are also happy to share with you how we've done it. Contact us for those details.)
Sword and scabbard weigh together: 4.75 lbs./2.15 kg - shipping weight is 7 lbs./3.2 kg for 1 sword.
This is the same sword that we gifted to the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, back in April 2016. This was honoring the diversity in his cabinet and was offered on behalf of all Canadian Sikhs. Read the entire story and see images of this presentation here. See video of the actual sword presentation here. One image is also below left.
In October 2017 we were part of the opening ceremony at the Westborough, MA Gurdwara (Sikh Temple). There, one of our Song of the Khalsa swords was presented to the governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker honoring him for protecting diversity and the rights of lawful citizens who may not yet have the necessary documentation to remain in the United States permanently. See images below left.
Cupro-Nickel is 70% copper and 30% nickel. 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 (energy center's in the body), 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. Nickel can promote psychological healing. Wearing nickel or having it close at hand can act as a negative energy detoxifier and help drain away depression, fear and anger. If you're suffering from compulsive thoughts or dreams, nickel can help purge your mind of them. Wearing nickel encourages creativity and a lightness of spirit.
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 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.
