This stunning athame or ritual knife has been lovingly crafted from Devon Oak wood and an upcycled vintage silver plated fish knife. 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 sacred woodland and the wood in this piece was from a giant who shed a large branch last summer. We were drawn to decorate this athame with the Tree of Life, Awen symbol and Triple Moon.
Oak is one of the most sacred trees and it carries the energy of kingship and wise rule, personal sovereignty, authority, power, protection, sealing or opening doors, endurance, and invocation of wisdom, fertility and abundance. Oak magic inspires bravery, presence, leadership skills, prosperity, and strength “Mighty oaks from little acorns grow” goes the quote. This tree inspires us to be strong in body, mind and spirit. It is a sacred and revered tree representing endurance, power, protection and authority.
Oak being a Celtic sacred tree we have also added the Ogham symbol of duir to the athame for added strength and connection to the tree.
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 26cm / 10".
All our handcrafted items are created and infused with love, positive intentions and a little magic )0(
