I maybe be wrong, Often am but I'v read some where that originally Sikh's were to carry a full sword and with with British raj the current kirpan was adapted because the British felt threatened

I've heard that as well...

Come on bro. You should know what your true ithihaas is. 

Originally it was panj hathiar or 5 weapons of which a talwar was just one.

From Nabha's Mahan Kosh:



No what I meant was that during colonial times, the brits banned long (proper size) kirpans cause they were scared. At least that's what i thought i was referring to lol
