This is one of our new “rippled” blades where we use a special texturing hammer to create the effect of ripples on the highly polished iron blade.
It has also been engraved on one side with the Tir rune for success, and Sowlio on the other for abundance.
The hand carved handle is Apple which is sacred to the divine feminine. It is traditionally associated with Venus, and the goddess – if you cut an apple in half the core makes a pentacle! Apple is associated with love, and Venus with love, lust, healing and luck. Apple is a pretty pinkish wood and we have learned a technique to leave a little of the bark and under bark on, which makes a gorgeous finish. The handle is hand carved and then sanded to a fine furniture finish and oiled with our Luna Ignis “Lilith” anointing oil.
The Athame is approximately 10.5 inches long – 5 of which is the blade.
