Our beautiful Traditional Witch Athame is finely crafted with a highly polished brass pommel, black heartwood grip, and a perfectly balanced, dual edged blade and includes a protective, stitched leather sheath. Made to last a lifetime and ready to be put into magickal service.
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 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.
Size 12.5" in length.
