The athame is an essential element to a working witch's ritual practice. Traditionally, the athame is a black handled, double edged blade and serves as a representative of the element of Air (although in some traditions it serves as the element of Fire due to its masculine, phallic symbolism, such as seen during a "chalice and blade" ritual).
The witch's athame (pronounced ah-thah-may) traditionally has dulled edge as it is not to be used for cutting on the physical plane but to direct the spiritual energy in ritual, circle or spell casting.
