I actually made this one back in October/November as a Yule gift for my girlfriend's Wiccan girlfriend, but realized I forgot to share it. We knew that she didn't have an athame (too expensive, she said, but she's the type to not feel like she NEEDS one, either), and figured it would be a nice gift. I'm not Wiccan, myself, but I tried to be considerate of her beliefs and intent, and my girlfriend provided me with input on that. The blade is recycled farrier's rasp (both the recycling and the connection to horses are good things for her particular beliefs), with a yew handle (apparently the best wood for magic conduction) and natural-death horsehide spacers (the horse connection again), and copper pins (also good for magic conduction). Since Wicca is big on 3's, doing a triple normalize/quench seemed appropriate, and I did it on the night of a Full Frost Moon. She was very excited to unwrap it, and I hope it serves her well, even if I don't totally get it
This is my first farriers rasp knife. And first knife in about a year. Been busy doing leather work. Turned out descent. Its tough, I do know that. whacked a 2x4 in half and it still shaves. I am happy with how it turned out. I will post another pic tomorrow with its new owner. Handle is desert ironwood. mosaic pins. Hand tooled sheath by me. Thanks for looking. Eddie
