Large and compact sizes - coming late summer/early autumn 2023!
PRE-ORDER our first Noble Lion medium size kirpans!! These are being offered at 30% off! White pearl Kirinite or midnight blue Kirinite (durable beautiful resin) handle and scabbard inserts. They are inset on the handle with a Khanda/Adi Shakti shield (for guidance and protection) and on the scabbard with an exquisitely sculpted lion (to help you towards having the strength of a lion)! Both of these inserts have been plated with a very durable gold tone/ titanium nitride finish.
When we made mosaic natural mother of pearl kirpans – 8 to 10 years ago, (which we have no plans to do again because of the challenging reality of variations/imperfections in that natural material) – the white pearl always sold out the quickest.
The white pearl Kirinite looks a lot like natural mother of pearl…. That is one reason why we are so enthused about these new kirpans! The exquisite, original laser engraved design work is another!
We have received numerous prototypes from this new supplier and several more are still expected prior to receiving our production. We are pleased with the progress they have made providing very tangible improvements with each batch of these. We expect delivery of these in mid June 2023 and as soon as we have them and they are inspected, we will ship to you. Orders over $265 ship free in the United States!
Medium size plain Noble Lion Kirpans are $410 each less 30% including strap and pouch. Each have a 4.5 inch/11.4cm blade (9 inch/23cm overall length, including handle). $95 more for exquisite laser engraving less 30%!
We are enthused to be able to offer you exceptional new artwork that is laser engraved on both sides of all four sets of metal fitting on both sides of the Kirpan. Patterned after our much more expensive hand engraving, the laser engraving adds elements of beauty, elegance and sophistication that we have not been able to offer so affordably in the past.
Each Kirpan comes with one perfectly fitted adjustable strap in 2 color choices. Black and gray or dark blue and gray. A gold embroidered zipper pouch is also included. These Kirpans are sharp. We wonder why you would bother to carry a Kirpan that is not?
Inspirational Blade Etching or Personalization... choose from the 3rd drop-down menu above. We have sacred, inspiring Gurmukhi and English phrases that can be deeply etched onto the stainless steel blade of your Kirpan(s) for $50 each. It is also possible for us to create any wording and/or design work for your Kirpan blade that you'd like and that is an additional $250.
Stainless Steel's energies are highly projective. 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. Stainless steel is also maintenance free and never changes color or tarnishes.
WHAT IS THE KHANDA / ADI SHAKTI SYMBOL?
The Khanda / Adi Shakti is a symbol of infinity.
It relates to primal creative power and has three parts to its design:
The Chakra is a circle, also a symbol of infinity and reminder that God’s infinite nature, has no beginning or end. To the extent one understands the creation as a reflection of the Creator, a circle can be seen to reflect the oneness and unity of mankind in essence, regardless of apparent differences of race, religion or gender.
The central Khanda is the double-edged dagger (in center), representing the straight and narrow path of righteousness, the razor’s edge that cuts both ways – in that what you do to others you are actually doing to your Self. In yogic terms, the khanda represents neutral mind – the ability to make non-reactive decisions.
The two Kirpans are curved single-edged knives on both sides of the symbol and represent the polarities that need to be balanced by neutrality: temporal and spiritual, negative and positive, etc. In yogic terms, these two kirpans represent the negative and positive minds. Guru Hargobind (one of the founders of Sikhism) wore two swords, signifying Miri – political or temporal power, and Piri – spiritual sovereignty.
