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.
