it's okay. Sometimes actually when people outgrow their kara and it becomes too small, they have to cut it off. You can give it back to the Gurdwara I believe and they can re-use the metal to mold them into a new kara.

If someone does have a broken Kara, a torn Turban or any of the 5K's which is broken or torn the best way out is to do "Jal Pravah" meaning depositing in a flowing and clean river.

Do remember to utter, "WaheGuru WaheGuru" while depositing the Kara in a river where there is a continuous flow of water but not in a place where there is stagnant water-body.
