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.

 Yes, I'm really proud of this one. I love making the athames out of cedar they shape up nicely and give off a delicious scent when you burn the designs in. Each kind of wood has it's own fragrance, I love the smell of oak that I sometime use to make wands and some runes out of, it has a spicy aroma. Thank you for being interested. ~M

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
