PLEASE WAIT FOR THE PICS TO LOAD - WORTH THE WAIT

The Sword of the Khalsa is a magnificently built weapon. The blade of this unique Siri Sahib is made of Damascus steel. The hilt or handgrip is decorated with white gold and diamonds. It has a portrait of the 10th Guru, Guru Gobind Singh forged in yellow gold and the embellished handle of solid jade and white gold is in the shape of Guru Gobind Singh’s hawk. The stainless steel scabbard, the sheath that covers the blade, has the entire text of the 10th Master's Jaap Sahib laser-etched in microtype. The Jaap Sahib contains over 3,550 words. Also on the scabbard, spaced evenly apart, are miniature vignettes from the Master's life carved in yellow gold. There are six vignettes, three on the back and three on the front. Each vignette is set off with white gold, and precious stones (diamonds and amethysts).

This sword was crafted by Jot Singh of Millis, Massachusetts- my neighbor. he was charged with this duty by Yogi Harbhajan Singh Khalsa, our teacher and inspiration. It's production was made to coincide with the Tercentenial (1999) of the birth of the Khalsa.
