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.
These fierce creatures were originally designed as rain spouts on medieval cathedrals, their images sprung from pagan goblin-lore. Over the succeeding centuries gargoyles became associated with guardianship, spiritual protection and magic. The Gargoyle Athame is crafted from pewter in a three dimensional image with ruby red eyes and a castle blade, the piece is about 10 inches tall and makes a beautiful athame or decoration.
Due to the size and shape of the athame by ordering you are certifying that you are over the age of 18.
