Not sure about the actual definition of a kirpan, but u can't have one on ur kanga, coz then it's not a shastar and therefore not a kirpan. It's definately not for show - what would be the point of carrying one? U gotta be able to access it.

Two??? When I wear one under my clothes I wear two 3 inch ones, and when I wear one outside I just wear a medium sized one.(And sometimes I don't take off my small ones so I end up wearing 3)My medium sized one is 9 inches with the handle. By 9 inches do u mean with the whole kirpan or just the blade?

The requirements for a kakaari kirpaan is stipulated in most amrit sanchaars, if not ask the panj when you take amrit who will clarify this for you.

To what I know your kakaari kirpaan (that you wear as your kakaar to do bhog/rakhya etc with) should be made of one piece of sarbloh (the blade and handle should not be 2 peices joined together) and practical in use e.g. the handle should be big/thick enough for a good grip.

As aforementioned, in most amrit sanchaaars the above requirements along with a minimum size e.g. 9inches (3inch handle, 6inch blade) to wear always is usually given as rehat.

Please add to this if need be Saadh Sangat Jee.

(added after) I also have heard (not sure) that your kirpaan shouldn't be sharp on both sides which makes it a khandaa type shaster, so a kataar would be invalid, thats why a kataar is called a kataar...because its not a kirpan.

    • I'll leave it at this Hanji. You need to contemplate precedent and slippery slope. I mean your mindset could be applied to anything.  Still have made no comment about covid immune people.  I mean why not mandate everything we deem beneficial? You're talking about signing up not only you, but everyone, for mandatory jabs for decades? And you don't think there's any room for error in that? Or malfeasance? In Kalyug? I don't want you have to close the thread or anything, we both want Sarbat Da Bhala, we just don't agree on this issue, and all other aspects of covid aside, mandatory anything, and the types of tactics we see being employed are not okay.

Bodor Ahmed, 27 (15.07.94), of Balmore Close, E14, was sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, 30 November. He pleaded guilty to rape, threatening a person with a knife and sexual assault at the same court on 1 September 2020. At around 22:20hrs on 19 July 2020, Ahmed approached a 29-year-old woman who was walking along St Ives Place after leaving Canning Town Underground Station. He threatened her with a knife before forcing her into a residential property. Once inside the property, her raped and sexually assaulted her, despite repeated pleas from the victim for him to stop. Police were called by a member of the public who had seen Ahmed threaten the woman outside the building. Officers arrived and found the woman who was extremely distressed. They arranged specialist care for her. Ahmed attempted to get away through an underground car park, but was confronted by officers who were able to detain him. A large kitchen knife was found nearby. He was arrested and taken into custody before being charged the following day. Detective Constable Roberta Burkin, who worked on the investigation, said: "Ahmed's actions were absolutely appalling. He armed himself with a knife before carrying out an unprovoked attack on a defenceless woman for his own perverse gratification.
