The Luna Negra, or Dark Moon, athame is an excellent piece for your altar and your ritual. The black wood hilt is carved with a spiral pattern up the handle, lending it a nocturnal quality. The double-edged blade is wider at the guard and tapered to a sharp point in the Cinquedea style, making it perfect for directing energy without being heavy.
Popular in 15th and 16th century Italy, the Cinquedea blades are named for the "five fingers" of width towards the guard. An exceptional choice for Renn Faires, this blade style was one of few things from the Italian Renaissance that didn't gain wide popularity in Europe. Whether calling upon the moon goddesses or celebrating some night magic, this is a powerful blade for your collection.
