One of the four tools of witchcraft, the ritual knife is known as an athame (pronounced 'ah-thah-may'). The athame usually represents the element of fire and is used to cast the circle and call the quarters. While not generally used for cutting, it is permissible to use the athame to cut cake at a handfasting.

In classic tradition, the athame had a black handle and the boline a white handle, but today you can usually use whatever styles and colors strike your fancy. The most important thing is that it feels right to you, since it is the athame you like and are comfortable with that will work best in your own magick.
