Pagan Handfasting Athame

A Handfasting athame is a Pagan spiritual tool for handfasting ceremonies to symbolize the union of the God and Goddess.

This beautiful handcrafted athame is corresponded with a Cherry wood handle stained red with an Amethyst to symbolize love; engraved with marriage symbol; engraved in Elder Futhark runes “For so long as love shall last” and comes with a leather sheath.

All my athame blades are made from a repurposed stainless steel kitchen knives with a double edge. This blade is approximately 5" and approximately 13 1/2 " in full length. The sheath is made with leather, stitched with suede cord and coated with an acrylic coating to make the leather more stif. Cracks may appear on the leather during use.
