Athames (also known as ritual knifes) are a witches personal, magical knife. In neo-pagan witchcraft the athame is used only for casting the circle, and never for cutting. Other older traditions use the knife as much as possible in the belief that its power increases with use. The athame is associated with the element of fire (in some traditions, air). The athame is also used in many invocations, evocations, calling the watchtowers, LBRP (lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram), spellwork, ceremonies, initiation, and various rituals and rites.
The Egyptian symbol of life, the universe and immortality. The tau or looped cross means both life and hand mirror. It also represents the male energy (the staff) and female energy (the closed loop). Traditionally, the ankh is carried as a scepter in the hands of dieties. The Ankh Athame is 8 inches long and is hand crafted in fine pewter.
