JOT SINGH KHALSA

Bio

My wife and I live and have our business and small manufacturing facility on the grounds of a wonderful spiritual community in Millis Massachusetts USA about a 50 minute drive, southwest of Boston. Classes are offered here in yoga and meditation, healing, humanology and a lot more. I'm Jot (pronounced Joat - 'rhymes' with boat) Singh Khalsa and my wife and I have been part of this community since 1980. I grew up in the Boston area.

For 6 years, beginning in 1972, I trained intensively in art, jewelry making and metalsmithing at the State University of New York at New Paltz where I learned to create silver and gold jewlery and artful objects. Shortly thereafter in New York City, I attended the 1st New York Knife Show, was impresed by what I saw and handled and said to myself 'I can do this!'. My shop and home office are where I design and my team and I fabricate handmade knives, swords and Kirpans (sacred Sikh knives). We are happy to consider creating something unique and special for you or loved ones. We also design and offer quite a bit of jewelry, which can be viewed and purchased at: www.theKhalsaRaj.com and www.LifeKnives.com.

I enjoy designing edged items, fine-tuning the mechanics of a folding knife, and meeting the challenges that a one-of-a-kind dagger, sword or Kirpan present. Choosing the materials that will best suit the subtleties of a paritcular piece is another aspect that I take pleasure in - matching different colors and shapes of a handle or inlay materials with patterns of damascus steel. It's very satisfying when a piece that I've toiled for hours, days, or months over develops into something that pleases others as well as myself.
