  3. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I recently purchased this Sri Sahib from India and have removed all it's packaging. I have a few questions regarding it's care. 1.) I have been oiling the blade with coconut oil once a month but because the bade is curved and circular (in width) how would I retain it's keenness? How can I sharpen it on a whetting stone? 2.) What do I polish the handle with? 3.) The bottom of the sheath is metal as well, how do I stop it from blackening and dulling; how do I keep it clean and polished? 4.) The sheath is similar to leather but

  8. I forewarn you, some Jathebandi fanboys will find this insulting: The Five Kakkars. Tradition expounds that when the valorous Bhai Jaita brought Guru Teghbahadur Ji’s head to the young Guru Gobind Rai, the latter Guru exhorted emotional restraint. After debriefing Jaita as to the situation in Delhi, where the senior Guru was martyred, the Guru inquired as to the numeric presence of the Sikhs in the city. Jaita replied that though many were present, no conspicuous markers distinguished them from other non-Sikh citizens as long hair was retained by a majority of citizens irrespective
  9. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh Is it possible to wear kirpan openly in Canada, that is, not beneath one's clothing? If so, is this routinely practiced? In the UK, I've often worn it openly but in some circumstances had this partly covered e.g. over the clothes but partly wrapped by a cummarband along the waist. Sometimes beneath a sleeveless vest type jacket with half of it dangling at my waist. I've never experienced any problems and dealt politely with the odd racist. I've spent several years doing humanitarian work in the developing world and have never had to conceal my kirpa
  10. I'm trying to find some authentic information regarding the original kirpan. Along with other artifacts, the Kirpan allegedly belonging the Guru (handed over by Nabha royal family after court battle), has recently (2015) been on display in Anandpur Sahib and on specially organised tour. The kirpan is short and there are longer swords and other artefacts- see this link. The Kirpan itself has a sharp straight edge. It is not curved (photo below, top left). The sheaths on all artifacts are made of leather perhaps with some wood on the larger ones and are straight in shape (no end hook). Give

  12. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, does anyone have any suggestions for where Daas can get high quality kirpans? (Daas would prefer not getting the KhalsaKirpans that cost crazy just because they have some fancy jewels). Does anybody know where to get high quality affordable Kirpans? (Also none of those mass produced shastars as they don't seem as strong).

    Kirpan Level

    Hi so I have a question. Where is the Kirpan handle supposed to end - is it supposed to sit at your hip joint? Or is it supposed to be at waist line? Is it the end of the handle people look at or the end of the Kirpan point? Either way what is the correct length? Also can I wrap it on a belt? Or can I use a belt as a kamaar kass? Thanks
  18. I came across a video on youtube while i was searching Baba thakur singh bhindranwale. A amritdhari sikh takes off his kirpan half way through the video. I was suprised this singh had did this. I support him with what he is doing and i think everybody should but it was a real big suprise What are your thoughts on this ??? And are we allowed to remove our kirpans?? This is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty9qf3e4TSU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
  19. Watch these disgusting goons pick on a girl and her brother in law. Some might say this is India. But the western world is not safe from this behavior. Many times women are molested in this manner and no one does anything. Instead these people stand by and make a video of it. There are more bystanders than those who will stand up against this behavior. I witnessed this behavior myself in the western world and did not hesitate to send the message home to the goon. The kirpan's presence is a deterrence in itself. The goons fear the thought of the kirpan coming out and it's glistening bla
  20. You know how sikhi is a practical dharam.. Then why do we wear the 5 K's in the west? I mean realistically when would we use our kirpan. Isn't it better to learn mma, boxing etc. which are much more practically and if you get in a fight, can use and not get a prison sentence for / someone told me sikhism is based on the time, so like the first 5 guru sahibs didnt wear a kirpan (cuz it wasnt needed) but then the next 5 did cuz of the situtation with the mughals. So like in the west it's peace, the law doesnt really let us use kirpana. so what's the practical reason? what do you think>??
  21. Where can I buy a longer Kachera (Kachera for Chola) Online??
  22. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ Article 25 of the Indian Constitution allows Sikhs "the wearing and carrying of kirpans". Do you know of any places in India where this right is abused and therefore illegal? If so, list them here and when the visit took place.
  23. does anyone know what to do when your kirtan gets stuck as you can't take it out of the shield? all help would be appreciated.
  24. I would like to order a quality kirpan for a reasonable price... Any suggestions? Also interested in ordering the panj shastar that are parvan to sikhs by Guru Ji.
  25. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Amritsar, Punjab (July 31, 2014): The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC) has strongly criticized Ganganagar (Rajasthan) based “University of Kota” also called “Kota University” for banning an Amritdhari Sikh student from entrying the examination hall because of his Kirpan. Sikh Kirpan – is a sword that is considered to be integral part of practice of Sikh religion. In a statement SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said Kirpan, one of the essential articles of faith, is must for a Sikh to wear all the times, but the administration
