No need to react like that. The Spanish Inquisition was a failed attempt to imitate me.I just don't like when people take me for a ride.

The issue of the Shi'a warriors is so specific that it actually is mentioned only in very specialised literature on Shi'ism which would mean that you already are extremely knowledgeable in Islamic studies. And if you have read them then you would remember the names of sources because they are quite unique. What probably happened like is that you heard about it from a certain Ustad Ji like who teaches a certain shastarvidya like and you don't remember how they're called like.

Fine mr. happy, but keep your "son" and other condescending language to yourself. Thank you. Just being friendly.

telling an amritdhari singh to smoke weed is not being friendly But guess what, I am in a good mood so...relax and be happy, happy!

The names of the knights of Imam Mahdi (fa) are called the khulasah or mukhlissin i.e. the pure or purified ones. As you will notice it is from the same root as Khalsa namely KH-L-S. The Khulasah will be Imam Mahdi's knights and his companions. According to Numani's hadith collection on the Ghayba, they will not cut their hair (and specifically not their moustaches) and will wear dark clothes (blue or black). Imam Mahdi (fa) will come wih the Dhulfaqar (or zulfiqar), the heavenly sword of Imam Ali (as).

Shi'ism has a long history of chivalry beginning with the Prophet (saws) and Imam Ali (as) but reaching way back to Zoroastrian chivalry of which Hazrat Salman (as) was the link. Shi'a chivalry orders have existed as military organisations until modern times but theu rituals have persisted in Shi'a Sufi orders. The initiation ritual consisted in drinking water (salted or sweeted) or even wine (in the case of the Alevi Qizilbash) in a steel bowl. The initiate had to give his head to God and take vows of chivalry such as protecting the weak, giving justice, be courages, not fearing death etc.

sounds like the exact description of Guru Gobind Singh ji's Khalsa.

what do present day shia's think of khalsa sikhs (if they know about them) in light of this hadith?

Well depends on the Shi'as and their level of education. Educated and open minded ullema are pleasantly intrigued and try to learn more about Sikhi, others think that the Gurus are the Ahl ul Bayt of India mentioned in authentic hadiths of Imam Jaffar (as), and one even said that we were the "lost tribe of Imam Mahdi" and that probably we are here to prepare humanity for his return by infusion the spirit of chivalry back into the great religious traditions. In any case my relations with Shi'as have always been excellent, but that's also because I love Ahl ul Bayt (as) a well.

In several hadith of Imam Jaffar as Sadiq (as) there is the mention of the Ahl ul Bayt of India. The hadith normally go as follows:

"Only two groups of people know the supreme name of God: us the Ahl ul Bayt of the Arabs and the Ahl ul Bayt of India."

Now let us look at the Ahl ul Bayt of the Arabs:

14 people, all pure divine beings of Light, manifestations of that same divine Light and manifestation of God's attributes.

Does India have an equivalent in any of it's other religions apart Sikhism? NO!

Our Gurus:

10 people, all pure divine beings of Light, manifestations of that same divine Light and saguna (with attributes) manifestations of God. AND...they have the supreme name of God too!

The Shi'a (most of them scholars or learning to be scholars) with whom I have discussed this have agreed that the Ahl ul Bayt of India are most probably the Gurus.

This implies that from their point of view

a.we practise a divinely sanctioned religious tradition

b. that the two traditions in essence don't conflict with one another. Differences of practises are surely there but practically identical doctrines (with variations) are shared and the same ethos of chivalry runs through both.
