In ceremonial magic and pagan witchcraft traditions, the main ritual implement was a black handled ceremonial blade called an athame. The athame represents one of the four elemental tools in Wicca, traditionally standing for fire. The other three elemental tools are the wand, the pentacle, and the cup or chalice. These four magical tools correspond to the four weapons in Celtic myth — the sword, the spear, the shield, and the cauldron. The athame's primary use is channeling and directing psychic energy. But the athame is also used to ritually draw the boundary of the magic circle, invoke the elemental guardians, and other magical ceremonies and rites.
This handcrafted Damascus steel blade comes with a unique hammered pattern that is created by hammering a small bearing into the hot steel. The rough hammered texture complements the smooth flowing lines of Damascus steel. The black buffalo horn and walnut handle gives the Witches Blade an earthy and elegant look, whether on your altar, or on your hip.
Each knife in this collection is individually handmade with the same dedication to detail, and with all-natural materials. This means that each knife will vary slightly in its exact color, shape, and pattern, so you can rest assured that absolutely no two knives - even of the same model - will ever look identical or mass-produced.
