This stunning and extremely tactile athame or ritual knife has been lovingly crafted by Justin from Devon Yew wood. 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.

Yew has always been considered a powerful and magical tree and Yew Wood is thought to be beneficial for regeneration, rebirth, protection, communication with the other world and was traditionally used for dowsing. Yew being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol for Yew (iodhadh) on the bottom of the handle for added strength and protection. 

Most of the Yew we have is from an ancient fallen tree in a friends garden, so all the wood was gifted and has a very strong energy.

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(
