The Sword of Khalsa

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.

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)

Weapons Master Jot Singh Khalsa (Millis, MA) designed, managed, and built the entire sword. Besides forging the blade and metal work, he also supervised the engraving and finishing work. Jot Singh’s wife, Harbhajan Kaur, collected the many donations that funded the expense of the sword. These donations came from individuals and sangats throughout the entire western hemisphere. The expense of the materials alone is estimated to be $110,000.
