Boline Sickle Knife with the Characters of the Moon Handle

Smokey Spells

The boline knife is a magical tool, used for cutting herbs and inscribing candles. Inspired by the white-handled sickle-shaped knife described in the famous ancient grimoire, The Key of Solomon, our interpretation is handcrafted with the modern magical practitioner in mind.

The blade is hand forged from reclaimed steel and maintains its rustic character. Designed for cutting herbs and cords (literal and figurative), this knife is sharp! The handle is shaped from fallen branches from our property, and then wood burned on both sides with the characters and seal of the moon from The Three Books of Occult Philosophy. It combines our love of astrology and gardening by the moon's phases. 

The entire piece is an homage to the the natural world and the unseen world, and the magical rituals that connect them. We wanted to create a tool that would be made with intention and be worthy of the tending and harvesting of your beloved plant allies. We sincerely hope these knives will be a special addition to your herbal harvesting rituals, spell work, and altar.
