Athames are black handled ritual knives, who most often contain magical energy in them. They can be identified by dark or fully black handle to which’s blade has often magical symbols carved to it.
Athame is only used for spell throwing, targeting or controlling. It should never be used for cutting and it always should be personal.
If you have need to transfer athame with you, best way to transport it is to wrap it into violet or black cloth.
