An athame, also known as athamé, is a ceremonial dagger used in magic traditions. The proper use of the tool was started by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in the early 20th century, for the use of banishing rituals. The tool was later adopted by Wiccans, Thelemites and Satanists. The athame is one of four elemental tools in modern occultism, traditionally representing fire for witches and air for ceremonial magicians. The other three elemental tools are the wand, the pentacle and the cup or chalice. These four magical tools correspond to four "weapons" of significance in Celtic myth: the sword, the spear, the shield and the cauldron (and/or grail).
The Athame becomes available for purchase for 3,360 Macca at Q's Blacksmith after the "Capture the Black Samurai" quest has been accepted. It is a dagger weapon that can strike 1-2 times with the same attack power as the Sharp Sword. It can outdo the damage from all three hits of the Bone Sword should Athama stike its opponent twice.
