In traditional witchcraft, a blade, athame, or boline are used to ceremoniously cut physical or metaphysical objects. When herbalism and folk traditions come into play, the athame can take a variety of multitasking forms. My personal favorite is a simple pair of sheers. They can be used for cord cutting rituals and gathering plant matter when foraging. These traditional bonsai sheers are cast from solid iron, sharp as hell, and are built to last They make a great accompaniment to your foraging basket or bag, or for ceremonial use in the binding of herbs and cord cutting. Measuring 6" in length and 3.5" in width, the wide grips make them comfortable for a variety of hand sizes and are perfect for righties or lefties, alike.
