Top 10 Reasons Why Athames Are Black

Renae Ransdorf

  1. So they'll go with any color of robe.
  2. So you can cover up nicks & scratches with shoe polish.
  3. It's slimming (can't have fat athames, can we?)
  4. It doesn't show dirt.
  5. Because finding a dropped athame in an outdoor ritual in the dark is a test of loyalty to your faith.
  6. It's so much more dignified than chartreuse.
  7. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
  8. Someone spilled all the paints together and that's what ended up.
  9. No, no! Black is for winter rituals--use white before Labor Day!

  10. And the #1 reason athames are black....

  11. So that we'd have something to argue about other than how "athame" is pronounced!
