Puratan Shastar and Sarbloh Wale

Recommended Posts

waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh

I'm sorry if this is a repeat thread, but I couldn't find any conclusive information elsewhere. I'm looking to acquire genuine puratan shastar in India, the likes of 2-3' shamsheer, tegha, khanda, chakra etc. This won't be for a private collection, not would it be sold on for a profit. What are they likely to cost?

Sikhs did also use European made/style cavalry sabres, which are readily available as antiques in the UK etc. These can be easily distinguished by use of carbon steel, a western style hilt and issue markings on the blade. Is it possible to find such antiques in India- many thousands would have been in active service in the 19th century?

I'm also looking for good Sarbloh wale to copy/reproduce puratan artefacts. Any contacts for humble and rehitwale sikhs would be most appreciated. Address/personal introduction preferred as daas does not have a telephone.

Huge cost brother! Ppl are raking money in India by selling old and possibly fakes.

Yes this seems to be the general consensus unfortunately, although one Nihang Singh has promised to find something for me.

Any contacts for Sarbloh wale please? I'd like to get some good copies/reproductions made of Guru's puratan shastar and artefacts that are on display.

People in India are ripping us off. They are selling kirpans for huge amounts of money. They will charge extra if they find out you are from the west as if money grows on trees here.

 

Their lalach knows no bounds. They are more expensive than western manufacturers like cold steel and windlass who produce much higher quality carbon steel blades.

You speak truth my friend. Would you recommend Windlass, something like their Light Cavalry Sabre?

I really am looking for handmade sarbloh.

Cutlass sword from cold steel is an excellent sword. I have one and have used it in the most abusive ways just to test it and not a dent in the blade. I can't imagine our lalchi desi sword makers producing such high quality and durable carbon steel blades.

 

The naval  cutlass from condor is also recommended. A real practical battle ready blade.

Of course you can always buy desi made kirpans from India. But get ready to get ripped off for an inferior weapon whose only redeaming quality is the fake Damascus steel patterns on the blade.

    • It may serve you to conveniently ignore what I've stated on multiple occasions so that it strengthens your argument, but you only make yourself seem dishonest.  I've categorically stated that I can't stand bhangra and things of that nature. I've been very clear about it many times on many threads. If you continue to ignore what's in black and white, I can only surmise that you can't read. If you lack the intelligence to differentiate between the culturally and spiritually destructive expressions that our people revel in, and those that are a subdued yet positive, and integral part of what makes us who we are -- that, if relinquished, will never be assumed by any other group on this planet, and therefore consigned to the dustbin of history -- then you are a huge problem. Address what I'm saying, NOT what you wish I was saying, so you "win" this pathetic little mud-slinging match. Don't use missionary tactics, lol. Be an honest Singh, not a Dogra.  
    • This is not a battle of culture or to say which youth is worse.  It's simply addressing what punjabi culture is today and where it came from.   @MisterrSingh wanted to down play the bad aspects of punjabi culture today and how bhangra basically has no to little effect negatively.  now hes throw a fit like a little school girl not only on this thread but another thread about me.  
    • Well I speak to him and know he’s listening. It’s just love. Doing path isn’t love. Applying the gyan of gurbani to your everyday life brings you up to a higher frequency. He made us out of love, from his wish to share what he learned with another.  Relax, be at peace, close your eyes and soften your heart, he’s there I promise. You don’t need words, let your heart speak  
    • Muslims already got 2 pieces - Pakistan n Bangladesh. What else do they want. Their statergy is simple, go to a place, breed like rats, have a significant minority, use the victim card while breeding like rats, and boom be the majority and employ sharia rule. Instead of supporting free kashmir or whatever we should firstly focus upon khalsa raj, and then care abt it. It should be the least imp priority of our kaum, but ppl like pannu jump that priority really up.  
    • Joh agyaa, gurudev. 🙏 😅 Perhaps I'm being too lenient and forgiving about our culture. I will contemplate on the points you raised.
