Feel the connections to Those Who Went Before as you cast your ritual circle with this unique looking Damascus steel athame that resembles a napped flint blade. It has a nice feel in the hand with two holes at the pommel to hang your magickal talismans from and make it your own. It is 12" in overall length with a sharpened, full tang 7" blade and a wood handle with mosaic pins. Comes with a nicely stitched and tooled leather sheath.
During the forging process, damascus steel is doubled over, welded, redoubled, and rewelded until the various layers of steel become intertwined, resulting in distinctive and complex patterns. Damascus steel is not only beautiful, but strong, and holds a sharp edge. It is not stainless and will rust if not cared for appropriately. Be sure to wipe the blade clean of any fingerprints or other material before sheathing it. Avoid long term storage in the sheath. Keeping the blade lightly oiled is advisable. Any light machine oil will do.
