English Hazel, gathered by Pat and I from the woodlands of Kent! Hazel is one of the most sought after magickal woods. The famous grimoire, The Key Of Solomon, calls for wands to be made by cutting a virgin (un-cut) Hazel tree at sunrise on midsummer morning. In the old days Hazel was hard to find as it grows in straight “wythies” that are perfect for making baskets, canes and fences… It was therefore super hard to find a “virgin” tree. Hazel grows in the USA, but it is a different species, more of a small bush. The English Hazel is a large nut bearing tree 30 feet high. Hazel, like Rowan, is very sacred to Mercury, Hermes, Thoth – Lord of Magick!
The blade is one of our unique “Serpent” blades… Forged with a snakes head and body, with a small ball hammer used to create the effect of scales. Sharpened and polished to a mirror finish!
The handle has been oiled with our Luna Ignis annoiting oil.
