Birch and Copper Athame - Aphrodite
This is one of our gorgeous "Aphrodite Athames" - a large heavy copper blade polished to a mirror finish.
The hand carved handle is Birch which is sacred to the divine feminine. It is traditionally associated with Venus. Birch is the first tree to grow after a forest fire and is associated with healing and regeneration. Birch is a whiteish 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 8 inches long - 4 of which is the blade.
