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.
Egyptian Gods Athame Set
This wonderful set of ritual athames are bedecked in Egyptian imagery, making them particularly well suited for anyone who finds kinship with the ancient gods of the Egyptian Pantheon. Both possess cross guards worked into the image of winged eagles, accented by a small red gem set just above the blade. The blades are decorated in inscribed hieroglyphics. The smaller of the two possesses a handle sculpted into the image of the pharaoh in funeral dress, laid to rest with his crook and flail. The larger athame's handle portrays two serpents, spreading around a glossy black and brown shaft before turning into an elaborate pommel, which itself depicts four pharaohs in funeral dress, identical to the handle of the small athame as they lay at rest with crook and flail. The larger of the two measures approximately 18 1/2 inches long and the smaller measures approximately 10 inches long. Together they are the perfect accents for your altar, and fine tools for your ritual crafts.
Due to the size and shape of this piece, by ordering you are certifying that you are over the age of 18.
