The Five Ks (Punjabi: ਪੰਜ ਕਕਾਰ Pañj Kakār) are five Articles of Faith that Khalsa Sikhs wear at all times as commanded by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh who so ordered it at the Vaisakhi Amrit Sanskar in 1699. The Five Ks are not just symbols, but articles of faith that collectively form the external identity and the Khalsa devotee's commitment to the Sikh rehni "Sikh way of life".

  1. Kesh: uncut hair
  2. Kangha: a wooden comb
  3. Kara: a steel bracelet to be worn on the right arm as a symbol of strength
  4. Kachera: a specific style of cotton undergarments worn by soldiers
  5. Kirpan: a strapped curved dagger, a symbol of self-defense and the fight against injustice.
