Athames (also known as ritual knives) 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.
Built with remarkable craftsmanship, this 8 inch long athame is perfect for your altar. Its blade is double edged and made of hammered steel in which you can see the rippling effect of layer upon layer of heated metal being smelted together. Except for the small, 1 inch metal cross guard, its 5 inch long handle is carved expertly of horn, and rests comfortably in your hand. Coming with a leather sheath that can be hung upon your belt, this athame is perfect for those rituals in your wooded meadow as well as those you hold on your altar at home.
Due to the size and shape of this piece, by ordering you are certifying that you are over the age of 18.
