Siri Sahib / Shastar / Sword - Baldev Singh Nihang - for Sale

Recommended Posts

VjkkVjkf

I have for sale a Siri Sahib made by Baldev Singh Nihang & Son.

It has a 20inch Sarbloh blade with a reinforced spine. Also includes a wooden sheath miyaan wrapped in leather.

The sarbloh used is of the highest quality carbon steel which has been heat treated to toughen the blade and sharpened to a wicked edge.

This is a real functional Siri Sahib, not just a display piece. 

Please contact me for more pictures/ videos.

That's a nice looking blade. Glad it's  high carbon and heat treated. Most shastar out of Punjab are very low quality and aren't heat treated properly so they're essentially useless as combat weapons.

 

Most people are wearing very soft iron, non heat treated Kirpaans.

Price?

Price added ji. Baldev Singh is on the pricier side for India but compared to international bladesmiths he is cheap. I commissioned a pesh kabz from him earlier this year which cost me  £180 (I got quoted £400 from bladesmiths in USA) I’m happy to pay his prices as mentioned above, the shastar are high quality functional combat weapons, not just for display.

It's a shame that most people don't buy high carbon steel swords, I don't buy  swords made in india because most of them are stainless steel (The ones being sold  near the golden temple)  There should be more battle-ready swords and modern reproductions, the only ones I seen were the Talwar on Coldsteel, but Coldsteel is mixed yeah their high carbon steel but the quality depends on each model they release, they're very good for knives but for swords it's 50/50 (I heard their sabers are good, which is good considering they sell a Talwar model) another website is Kult of Athena.

Hanji that’s very true, all shastar should be made from sarbloh (carbon steel) 

Many get confused - carbon steel is basically a very pure iron with a small amount (1%) of carbon mixed in (not chemically combined) 

stainless steel is used to make display swords, they would break if ever used in battle.

Coldsteel mass produce knives and swords, some models might hold up to some abuse and even cut well but not the same fit/finish and workmanship put into a handmade shastar.

I still have a shastar as pictured above for sale. If anyone wants to make an offer please contact me.

Have you tried ebay?

Last time I checked, selling swords isn’t allowed on eBay. 

I had 2 of these shastar, sold one via this forum. The other will sell given enough time. Anyone who knows what baldev singh nihangs prices are like will know this is a very good deal.

    • Who resides in the Sangat ? Guru. So the Guru is sangat and the sangat is Guru. So would you not want to serve our Guru the best you can? So what if people come to the Gurdwara for the food, make the best and let them come. Have big hearts guys, Guru tha langar sabho awaay, let them come the house of Guru Nanak is open to all. Tell you what, you moaners why don't you cook up dhal and roti at home for a week you will soon get chittar. This is Guru ghar, let it be the best you can, make the best and serve the best and Guru ji will smile on you. What is wrong with the proliferation of Akahnd Paaths and Sukhmani sahibs, you think people were doing a sin ! Why shouldn't they do paaths at the gurdwara and why shouldn't you make the best langar you can? Everyone has sharda and everyone wants to make the best . Bar humbug to the lot of yer!   😀
    • Yes. Being intellektual means you are boring. Keneda particularly promotes this. They love the Larping that goes along with the rural life. 
    • Be mindful of quality educational institutions because it would encourage further exodus out of Punjab. It also depends on where you think educational institutions come from, what I mean by this whether it is public (government funded) or privately funded. There are plenty of privately funded colleges and universities. For example, there is Lovely University. This is privately funded. They have a huge campus built not far from Jalandhar.  You cannot have these educatonal facilities without having the jobs to go with it.
    • Well I had one relative (through marriage) from back home who was snatched up to do his MSc in Germany (something about auto-driving cars with BMW). When he finished that, he was snatched up by America (Texas to be specific) to do his PHd overthere, all he had to pay for was his ticket there and they have set him up with uni fees and accomodation. Another female relative in the same branch of the family just got a job in a Panjabi university as a Chemical Engineer lecturer, so things are happening.  Not enough in my opinion though. Says a lot that hordes of sons of relatively affluent pendu families back home aspire to come to the UK and become builders. There is an anti--intellectual culture back home. There is little to no culture of appreciating/developing gian for gian's sake - and it explains a lot of what we see. 
    • There has been a concerted, long term effort to dumb the panth down and promote barn-dance jamboree culture over all else. This helps keep 'wild Panjabi Sikhs' docile and easier to control. Sadly too many of our own are complicit in this, and actively help promote it themselves.  But people are waking up to this.
