Athames and bolines are traditional tools in witchcraft. The athame (pronounced ah-thah-may) is an ancient and powerful tool long used within ritual practice. Traditionally, the athame is a black handled, double edged, dull blade, as it is not to be used for cutting on the physical plane, but to direct the spiritual energy. However, less commonly held practices sometimes dictate that an athame should be born of nature, and perhaps be crafted from wood or bone. Some also hold that if the ritual practitioner uses it as his or her favorite tool, using it to even cut their food and otherwise go about everyday life, more of their energy and power can be directed through the blade during ritual practice. Whether made from natural material, the color, sharp or dull is really a personal choice. The most important aspect of the athame is that it feels natural in your grasp.
The boline is typically used as the utility blade, cutting thread or herbs. The can also be used to carve symbols onto candles.
