Despite its appearance, the athame is a tool, not a weapon. And it's probably the most important of the four main tools used in Wiccan ceremonies, the other three being the wand, the pentacle, and the cup, or chalice.

The main use of the athame is to channel and direct psychic energy. It is used for drawing the boundary line of the magic circle, the sacred and protected space in which rituals and spells are performed.

In a symbolic performance of the Great Rite, the athame is plunged into a chalice of wine, where the athame represents a phallus and masculine energies and the chalice represents the womb and feminine energies.

The athame usually has a double-edged blade to allow for more fluid movements of the hand and wrist when drawing invoking pentagrams, but by tradition, is never actually used for physical cutting. When the ceremony requires something to be cut – herbs or twine for example – a different knife is used, usually one with a white handle or a boline.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
