Apple and Iron Goddess Athame - Oshun
This is one of latest signature hand forged unique blades! The Goddess Athame! Forged to resemble the famous Spirial Goddess image.
The iron blade was created by using ball hammers to create the head and breasts - then finely splitting and widening the spine of the blade to create the ellipse for the womb. Finished by polishing to a mirror shine.
The hand carved handle is Apple which is sacred to the divine feminine. It is traditionally associated with Venus, and the goddess - if you cut an apple in half the core makes a pentacle! Apple is associated with love, and Venus with love, lust, healing and luck. Apple is a pretty pinkish 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 12 inches long - 6 of which is the blade.
