A very popular ritual knife made of a single piece of Buffalo bone. The bone has been shaped, smoothed and polished into the shape of a blade.

The knife does not have a sharp cutting edge. If you wish, you may sharpen and polish it with a grinding tool, just like metal. It may also be embellished with scrimshaw techniques. Please allow for natural variations in color and texture.

Material: Non-endangered Buffalo bone
Dimensions: 9 inches x 7/8 inch (widest point)

About the Athame and Boline
An athame is a ritual knife used in Wiccan and other Pagan or magickal traditions. It may be used symbolically in a ritual, or to direct energy, or both. For most, an athame is a purely magickal tool—it is never used for mundane tasks, for violence, or for cutting physical objects at all.

Nevertheless, there are some aspects of magic that require a physical knife: Cutting herbs, preparing food offerings, trimming cords and paper, and so on. Many practitioners keep a separate knife (called a boline or kerfan) for these ritual tasks.
