This very large athame, perfect for traditional witchcraft, ceremonial high magick  and wicca was crafted from a single piece brass bar. 16.5 inches in total length, of which the blade is 10 inches.

The handle is hand gathered and carved Beech. Queen of the forest and wife to the Oak! Beech trees have a gorgeous wood very similar to Oak, with a deep grain. The beech nuts feed forest creatures and in autumn the leaves turn a transparent gold which stay on the trees all through the winter and glow in winter sunlight. Beech is sacred to Saturn and therefore good for needed change.

Paul cuts all the wood himself. He asks and blesses the tree first and assures the tree that it’s gift will be used to create beautiful heirloom ritual tools. The tree is cut with sharp tree snips to ensure the tree is not damaged and will continue to thrive. After a year or more of seasoning, Paul hand carves the handles himself and sands them to a fine furniture finish of 400 grit. The handle is then oiled with our Luna Ignis anointing oils to make the grain pop and to protect the wood.

Unique hand made heirloom quality athame by our pagan blacksmith. Paul is a practitioner of traditional witchcraft and ceremonial magick.

Brass is sacred to The Sun and so is great for spells and ritual work for success, strength, prosperity, and health.

In Ceremonial magick and some witchcraft traditions the dagger or athame represents the element of air and therefore used to control, banish, or destroy.

In some Wicca traditions the athame represents the element of fire and is perfect for a weapon of manifestation and circle casting.
