Hardeep Singh, founder and owner of Gurusgifts started his business from scratch at the age of 20. In 1999 he began collecting antique swords and knives and providing them to Sikhs and other collectors throughout the world. He continues this work today, along with a myriad of new designs of swords and knives. He also developed the stainless steel kara with gold engraving of Gurbani.
He originally made three of these karas, one each for his friends: Jugat Guru Singh (now Principal of Miri Piri Academy), Sada Sat Simran Singh (now a celebrated member of Chardi Kala Jatha), and Harimander Jot Singh (who worked as an entrepreneur and spokesman for Miri Piri Academy).
From these first three original karas was born a legacy that has spread worldwide today. Like all good ideas, many people have adopted and adapted his products to sell on their own, but Hardeep has remained steadfast in the passion he has always had for his karas.
Hardeep Singh has also facilitated tours and spiritual yatras for over 15 years, and has assisted such organizations as Oxford University, United Sikhs, and Newsweek Magazine, with his unique approach to guiding and translation.
Hardeep Singh now lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife Amrit Kaur, and daughter Harbani Kaur.
