This athame is a marvelous piece to add to the mystery of your ritual and worship. With a black, 3 3/4" handle carved of wood and metal to comfortably fit the curve of your palm, it presents a 4 1/2" blade, finely crafted of stainless steel. Flaring out at the base into a curved cross guard, often referred to as wings, it is decorated with the upturned moon and pentagram that are viewed as a symbol for Hecate, the goddess of magick, the underworld, and crossroads. Often known as the crone goddess, or otherwise seen as a potent force in mystery and magick, her symbol and blessing upon this athame make it a potent addition to your rituals. This athame comes with a black leather sheath that snaps closed around the athame`s handle to hold it firmly in place and has a loop to allow it to be affixed to your belt.
