Egyptian Athame Dagger with Sheath
This Egyptian Athame with Sheath is a ceremonial dagger, and it is the main ritual implement or magical tool among several used in the religion of Wicca, and is also used in various other Neopagan or witchcraft traditions. The athame is one of the most important ritual tools, with many uses, but is not to be used for actual physical cutting. The athame stands as one of the four elemental tools in Wicca; traditionally standing for fire. The athame is an individual ritual tool. This is an especially important tool if working with Egyptian Magick, which is known as an extraordinary means for acquiring knowledge about one's surroundings - above all the hidden parts of them - and gaining control over them. Gods, demons and the dead can be implored, cajoled or threatened. Their help can be enlisted to avert evil or achieve one's desires.
