THESE SWORDS ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF STOCK AND WE ARE WORKING DILIGENTLY TO HAVE THEM BACK IN STOCK IN FEBRUARY 2023
The image at the top left shows our most current swords and what you can expect when ordering.
We believe these swords may be among the finest that many of you have ever seen or handled, at a reasonable price. We are beginning with a new supplier and our new plan, due to unforeseen delays related to the pandemic, is to have our first batch of these available by February 2023. We are confident this supplier will add immense value and excellence to these swords. Current prices have increased through this new source and since we began offering these 8-9 years ago. We do anticipate a slight price increase further after we actually receive our first batch -when we have a better sense of all of our costs involved. We are confident there will be overall greater uniformity of fit and finish in these new swords through the additional time spent on each and attention to every detail.
This factory was introduced to us through a close friend and master sword maker colleague. He spent several years training these highly skilled workers to create swords for his own production. This factory has been employing his methods of sword fabrication, construction and finishing excellence, for 14 years now.
At the moment 1/4/23 we are completely out of stock. We expect four prototypes to arrive in about a month or so and those are earmarked for customers who’ve placed orders and have been waiting. We are happy to take your order and anticipate shipping February 2023. Those who have placed orders or decide to place an order will of course receive their swords in the order in which we received those orders, as soon as they arrive and are inspected. There's a series of images to your left. The next generation of these swords and what you can anticipate when you order is at the very top. Thank you for your continued patience.
Your options appear to the left, once you've selected them from the drop down menus above. These are excellent high carbon stainless steel bladed hardened and tempered swords with 34"/86cm long blades with masterfully hand carved and sculpted brass handle and scabbard fittings which have been coated with a durable and long-lasting titanium nitride / PVD finish in both gold-tone and stainless steel tone.
The handle contains an Ekongkar (symbol of One Creator of the creation). The scabbard includes a three dimensional Khanda / Adi Shakti Shield (empowering symbol of infinity) on the throat and a sculpted, chiseled, noble lion on the central scabbard panel.
The scabbard is available in royal red or navy bluish colors. (We've had regular success spray painting these scabbards many other colors - we can do that for you for $295. in whatever color you need. (It is quite a labor intensive project for us involving masking all of the metal parts).
Sword and scabbard weigh together: 4.75 lbs./2.15 kg - shipping weight is approximately - 7 lbs./3.2 kg for 1 sword.
Brass - in spiritual and metaphysical traditions Brass is the metal that brings out natural good and inner truth. Even the phrase ‘getting down to brass tacks’ tells of clearing away the old debris and getting down to the pure and natural truth. Brass is a projective metal that is also associated with Gold and can be used as a substitute for gold in healing/money attracting rituals. Brass has no planets, but a star that it’s associated with–the Sun. It’s element is Fire and Brass attracts healing, wealth, and protection.
Steel's energies are highly projective and it’s associated with the planet Mars, so named for the Roman God of war. As such, wearing stainless steel can be a little like donning spiritual armor. If you are looking to protect yourself from aggressive advances or any forms of extreme negativity, stainless steel is a good option. Having, wearing or keeping Steel close at hand, can offer one strength, courage, grit and determination.
This is the same sword that we gifted to the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, back in April 2016. This was honoring the diversity in his cabinet and was offered on behalf of all Canadian Sikhs. Read the entire story and see images of this presentation here. See video of the actual sword presentation here. One image is also below left.
In October 2017 we were part of the opening ceremony at the Westborough, MA Gurdwara (Sikh Temple). There, one of our Song of the Khalsa swords was presented to the governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker honoring him for protecting diversity and the rights of lawful citizens who may not yet have the necessary documentation to remain in the United States permanently. See images below left.
