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.

Hecate's Winged Athame

This athame is a marvelous piece to add to the mystery of your ritual and worship. With a dark, 3 inch handle carved of wood and metal to comfortably fit the curve of your palm, it presents a 4 inch blade, finely crafted of stainless steel. Flaring out at the base into a curved cross guard, often referred to as wings, it is decorated with the upturned moon and pentagram that are viewed as a symbol for Hecate, the goddess of magick, the underworld, and crossroads. Often known as the crone goddess, or otherwise seen as a potent force in mystery and magick, her symbol and blessing upon this athame make it a potent addition to your rituals. This athame comes with a black leather sheath that snaps closed around the athame's handle to hold it firmly in place and has a loop to allow it to be affixed to your belt.

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