Sikh, and Ye Shall Find

Bob and Jot

Our lives are enriched my the different knifemakers Bob and I have met over the years.  This week we had the pleasure of hosting a house guest from up state New York.  Jot Khalsa  is a Sikh and was traveling to a meeting in Espanola New Mexico.  He showed us some of the knives he has been working on.  I learned a new word: "Kirpan."  Which is the style of knife in the pictures below. Jote has a website and sells all sorts of spiritual jewelry, and knives.  Bob and Jot have been friends for years.  They are opposites and look like a juxtaposition in their photos.  They have a deep respect and admiration for each other as knifemakers as well as human beings. 

How a Sikh would wear a Kirpan.

Jot visited the day after another knifemaker Brian Fellhoelter was here from Arizona.  There 
was a huge difference in the energies of these two men.  I'll say no more.

Jot has several websites, all beautifully engineered.  For more of Jot's products check out: .

Thanks for reading. I'm still amazed that you  do.
