As Kirpan Kando Kharag

When I was in India I purchased this sword for my future wedding (I still don't know when that is or to whom, but I was thinking ahead). You may have seen this before in some other pictures because I lent it to Balwinder when he got married. The blade is an antique, it's a very nice blade, the handle may or may not be an antique, but the gold work is new. I took this photo in India, I probably should take some photos from other angles to fully appreciate all the designs on there. I'll try to remember to do that tonight. If you want to know where to get quality kirpans like this or others, I'll get you in contact with the provider. His name is Hardeep Singh and if you look at my India pictures in the archives I have pictures of him on this blog.

I love the intricate designs on the handle. Someone had to put a lot of hard work in making this fine piece of metal. Eh! I just read your "youth of the month interview". I wish I had same Sikh upbringing as you as a child. Great insight!

Beautiful Kirpan...but that doesn't justify...I need a proper adjective, maybe you can help when you post other pics that you take of it tonight.

And bought for a good cause :) Wishing you the best!

May Waheguru's apaar mehar be on you!
