Beech and Iron Athame - Saturn
This is one of our signature blades - the "Luna" blade. It is detailed with different sized ball hammers to create craters to suggest the surface of the moon, then polished to a mirror finish.
The hand carved handle is Beech, carved with a deep twist. Sacred to Saturn, Beech is used in workings of justice, discipline, time, needed change and even cursing and vengeance. Our covenstead backs onto a wonderful woodland of Oak, Pine, Maple, Mulberry, Beech and Birch. This gorgeous peice of Beech was gathered responsibly at Midsummer, the tree was blessed and thanked. After seasoning, It was carved and shaped to preserve both the beauty of the bark and wood, The handle is hand carved and then sanded to a fine furniture finish and oiled with our Luna Ignis "Banish" anointing oil.
The Athame is approximately 15 inches long - 5 of which is the blade.
