Iron Athame Primitive Celtic Design 10in
This is our new "Ensorcel"range of hand forged Iron Athames.
Forged from rectangle bar steel... We then hammered out the single sided blade and embellished it with small craters... The handle took a lot of hammering... We had to hammer the iron into a finer and finer point - stretching it out until we had enough length to fold it over to create the handle and enough left over to make the spiral... The amount of hammering required is reflected in the price!
Legend has it that the first blacksmith was Tubal Cain, 7th son of Cain. After the fall Yahweh ordered man to toil the earth by hand, but Tubal had other ideas and soon mankind had tools of iron and there was no more toiling by hand. Iron is therefore a manifestation of our free will and apostasy.
The Athame is approximately 10 inches long - 5 of which is the blade.
