This is one of our new “rippled” blades… Where we use a special texturing hammer to create the effect of ripple on water on the highly polished blade!
The hand carved handle is English Blackthorn The price reflects that Blackthorn is not found locally in the USA. We gathered some Blackthorn from the high moors of the famous stone circles of Cornwall in the UK. Blackthorn is used in Traditional Witchcraft for blasting (cursing). Its black nature comes from its thorns – scratches from which heal only very slowly. Gathered at Imbolc while the Blackthorn is in full blossom, and hard as nails as its other name is Ironwood. Blackthorn is sacred to Saturn and darker goddesses such as Lilith and Hecate. This athame was consecrated with oil and incense of Lilith. If you have dark work to do then this is the athame you need.
The Athame is approximately 13 inches long – 7 of which is the blade.
PRE_ORDER…. The blade has not yet been polished, or the copper cap… It will be finished by April 25th!
