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.

    • Very interesting it's just used a lot by others like the sun disk of Egypt etc. Have not seen it myself used in Sikhi before today.
    • This was a common motif/symbol in Sikhi and is still utilised by the Dal Panth. The Surya or Suraj is a reference to the dynasty (Suryavanshi) which Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and therefore the Khalsa Panth belongs to as mentioned in Bachittar Natak and other texts. ਜਾਂ ਦਿਨ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਛਕਤ ਯਹਿ, ਰਹਤ ਨ ਪਿਛਲੀ ਜਾਤਿ । On that day when you take Amrit [Khandey Di Pahul], the commandment is that you do not have a previous Caste. ਜ੍ਯੋਂ ਭ੍ਰਿੰਗੀ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਕੀਟ ਤੈ, ਤ੍ਯੋਂ ਸਿਖ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਗੁਰੁ ਜਾਤਿ ॥੨੪॥ In the same way a Bhringi, which transforms a [low] insect into a beautiful butterfly, a Sikh turns [beautiful] and adopts the Gurus Caste. ਸੂਰਜ ਬੰਸੀ ਦਸਮ ਗੁਰੁ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਸਿੱਧ । The Tenth Guru is from the Suraj Bans (Surya Vansh Lineage), the famous Kshatriya caste. ਯਾਹੀਂ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਬਰਣ ਅਬਿੱਧ ॥੨੫॥ In this way all the Khalsa turn into one of Kshastriya. [Naveen Panth Prakash, pg. 1581, Vol. 3]     ^ a Surajmukhi emblem being carried with Guru Sahibs entourage.     ^ The same emblem being used by the Nihangs today     ^ On the hilt of a Sikh Shastar     ^ A battle standard from the Sikh Empire with a Surya   ^ Surya logo   Gurbar Akaal!
