Natural Wood Athame *Willow* for Moon or Water Rituals!

Featured in a treasury celebrating all things witchy by WonderfullyWitchy here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MTI5MjkzNjl8NzY3ODAwNDE1/double-double-toil-and-trouble?ref=pr_treasury

This is a wonderful athame made from the wood of a Pussy Willow tree. Athames are something that I've never offered on Etsy before, and never really plan to again, for the simple reason that I usually only make them to order. This one was ordered some time ago by a person who failed to make further contact to claim it. As it was not to be personalised in any way I didn't require a deposit, so I haven't got their mailing address and have had no response from their email address. They stopped contacting me when the work was only half done, so this athame has been lying around in the workshop all summer in a half finished state getting in the way (and on my nerves) until I decided I couldn't ignore it any longer! I actually don't really mind if someone orders something then doesn't collect it as I tend to think they were just the means of getting it made for the rightful owner. So, if you've been looking for the perfect wooden athame, beautiful in its simplicity, light weight, strokably smooth and totally unadorned, then this might well have been made for you!

Fashioned from a straight branch of the Pussy Willow tree that grows next to my pond, the honey coloured wood simply glows. There is some interesting graining on the blade as well as a single knot, and you can see the central core of the branch at the very tip. There is a streak of dark grey weathering on the handle, and another of an almost purplish tinge at the tip of the blade on the other side. The ideal athame for rituals performed outside after dark, being a feminine wood balances the masculine aspect of the tool itself. Made with no more elaborate tools than a knife and a few sheets of sandpaper, this is the perfect tool for circle casting... and, being wood, you can waltz through airports with it without setting off any alarms! :-)

Size: Ten and a quarter inches long and almost an inch thick/wide.
263mm x 24mm.

It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions.
