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.

Papa Legba/Saint Athame

Papa Legba is the guardian and opener of crossroads. He is always the first and last spirit invoked in ceremonies, due to his permission for communication with the Loas. He opens and closes doorways. Papa Legba is usually represented by Saint Michael as shown on this athame. Antiqued gold-plated. 6.5 inches long.

Due to the size and shape of the athame by ordering you are certifying that you are over the age of 18.
