This beautiful one of a kind Cedar Wood Athame is carved from a single piece of wood. It is has an amazing natural inclusion toward the handle/grip end that looks as if it may have been part of a natural faery ring in the tree. (Visible in all pictures, but have made a close up detail to show the ring from both sides.)
After the athame was carved, wood burning was applied to really enhance the piece. The designs which work together to create a unique design are individual and different on either side. The designs are in appearance similar to flames, waves, or curls in the smokey sense. In other terms the shape and feel of this athame would be similar to a Dirk or Dagger.
I carve and wood burn, and like to try out new ideas. An athame is a tool the practioners use, (Witches, Wiccans, etc.)to cut the energies around them at various times, or to draw a Circle of protection, for worship or workings. Athames are not as a rule meant for physical work, i.e. cutting herbs, cords, stirring liquids. I thought that being the case why not try my hand at wooden ones, and now here we are. This athame is made of a single piece of cedar wood. first carved and sanded, the woodburned for coloration and decoration. Pictures are of both sides of the Athame and it's handsewn pouch.
