Tools of the Trade: The Athame





An athame (pronounced A-thayme) is a ceremonial knife, usually associated with the element of fire. It’s used to direct energy; a lot of people use it to cast a circle for ritual. They tend to be black and double-edged, but as with everything in your choice of tools your own preference is an important factor. Here, we’re showing you an athame made out of dogwood for Hekate, and another smaller one which just feels really good in the hand. We’d love to see yours!
