ShadowSmith can customize the Athame with your choice of stones and even symbols. Please ask for a quote.
The Athame is a knife-like tool used to channel energy and casting the circle. Traditionally, an Athame would be black handled, though many other styles are used according to personal preference. Generally an Athame is not used to cut anything material. It symbolizes the Fire or Air elements which varies according to tradition.
A ShadowSmith Athame is truly something special. Each athame is handmade, starting with making the blade, and then continuing through the creation of handcrafted grip, pommel, quillions, and scabbard, each element worked with magickal symbols and intent. As a result, each athame is a one-of-a-kind work of art, suitable for reverent use or display with your greatest treasures.
These athames are for those who find value in the workmanship of the MasterCraftsman.
