A Chakkar is a steel ring which from about the 16th century onwards was a weapon exclusively used by the Sikhs. It is commonly placed on the Dastar. When used in battle, it usually has a sharp outer edge, but for ceremonial purposes it often has its outer edge left blunt, as does this one.
It is classified as a quoit-type weapon which is thrown or hurled, either by being released after being twirled around the smooth inside edge by the forefinger (a favourite Sikh method) or released frisbee-like or discus style. It is said to have an effective range of 40 to 50 metres.
