The athame is an essential element to a working witch's ritual. The athame is a classic witch's tool and is used to direct intention and focus. They are not used to cut items physically, that's left to the witch's boline, but instead used in energetic workings, such as calling the quarters during a ritual, cutting an opening in a ritual circle, and other magickal uses.
The Sgian Dubh (pronounced skeean-doo) is a ceremonial dagger that is a traditional part of Scottish Highland dress. Its literal translation is "black knife."
