We are enthused to be able to offer you exceptional artwork that is laser engraved on both sides of the cross guard of these Kirpans. Patterned after our much more expensive hand engraving, the laser engraving adds elements of beauty and sophistication that we have not been able to offer so affordably.
Large and Compact Sapphire, Midnight Blue and Ruby Kirinite™ (named after an innovative dear brother Raj Singh’s daughter Kirin) Artisan Kirpans are in stock and shipping!
Large Sapphire, Midnight Blue and Ruby Kirinite™ Kirpans are £260 each, including strap, pouch and brochure. Each have a 6 inch/15.2cm blade (11.75inch/29.8cm overall length, including handle)
Compact Sapphire, Midnight Blue and Ruby Kirinite™ Compact Kirpans are £220 each, including strap, pouch and brochure. Each have a 3 inch/7.6cm blade (5.75 inch/14.6cm overall length, including handle)
We did some breakage tests with Kirinite™ samples and found the material to be far stronger than the resin we were using in our Khalsa Blue Kirpans. The Kirinite™ is also more uniform in finish than the black micarta (cloth based phenolic resin) and G10 we’ve been able to obtain and have been using. So we’ve decided to change to this new beautiful and ultra-durable resin and are now offering it in 3 exquisite colors (Sapphire, Ruby and Midnight Blue).
