The Khanda is the emblem of Sikhism. It is symbolic of the Sikh faith just as the Cross is symbolic in Christianity. There are three parts to a Khanda: the central double-edged sword which is the khanda itself and is a representation of the end of vanity, false pride and inequality; the chakra is a solid circle on top of the khanda; and the two swords on either side which represent divine justice and freedom. The Khanda shown here is a stainless steel pin. Length: 57mm
