An anthame is a ceremonial dagger, with a double-edged blade and usually a black handle. The athame stands as one of the four elemental tools in Wicca; traditionally standing for fire, as does the ritual sword. The Dark Witch Elemental Magic Fire Athame Dagger is constructed from high quality Polyurethane foam with a 10 mm inner core. The Guard features 3 golden circles representing the Triple goddessMaiden, Mother, and the Crone. This triple goddess represents the three phases of a woman's life. Up from the Triple Goddess the Blade has smoke and flames carved into the length of the blade representing the element fire. This athame is hand painted and antique to show years of wear from being handed down from mother to daughter.
