This stunning athame or ritual knife has been lovingly crafted from Devon Ivy wood and an upcycled vintage silver plated fish knife with a a flourish and zigzag 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 are blessed to be guardians of a small woodland in Devon and this athame is made from Ivy which broke away when one of our old trees last summer. We were drawn to decorate this athame with a spiral vine design.
As Ivy is one of the Celtic ogham trees and as such we have also burnt the gort symbol onto the handle for added strength and protection.
Ivy Wood symbolises determination, strength, optimism, success in business and new endeavours
Druids consider this wood to be sacred and it makes good ritual tools for protection, especially against wayward spirits and angry elementals. Ivy is also highly regarded for it's ability to bring you back to earth, should you ever feel lost in the other realms, just ask to be shown Ivy and you will always find your way home.
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 25cm / 10".
All our handcrafted items are created and infused with love, positive intentions and a little magic )0(
