This stunning athame or ritual knife has been lovingly crafted from Devon Cherry wood and an upcycled vintage silver plated fish knife with a floral design. Ideal for rituals and ceremonial use or as decoration on your altar. Many people choose to use an athame instead of a wand for some ceremonies.
We were drawn to decorate this athame with the spiral Goddess, pentacle, triple moon and heart and the words 'Gaias Love' in Ogham.
Cherry is the Tree of the heart and symbolises and encourages love, intuition, compassion, will and desire. Cherry ritual objects are very strong with Earth energy and very well grounded, unwavering, and solid. Cherry is used in ritual to stabilize and focus. Cherry is often used for intuitive and insight and to overcome obstacles. Cherry is imbued with the powers of making and doing, achievement, and self-assertion over obstacles and critics. It is the pure energy of will and desire. The cherry fruit is magically linked to the root chakra and so to sex and birth: the life force of attraction and renewal.
The athame has then been lightly waxed with our own natural beeswax, olive oil and lavender hand-blended wax and given a little polish. Size approx length 22.5cm / 9".
All our handcrafted items are created and infused with love, positive intentions and a little magic )0(
