How to construct your Air Dagger

, 02:30

In this article I am going to show you my way of constructing an amazing Golden Dawn Air Dagger with common tools. I will try to be as analytical as possible using images, especially when the steps become a little difficult. If you constuct your dagger using those instructions keep in mind that safety is first, know your tools, have your wood tightened all the time and let's do great magick.

I recommend that you start working with the steel if you have some experience with knife making or if you are quite a craftsman. If not, please have in mind that you will need a lot of time, you will have to see some knife making videos and try your best. If you cannot work with steel, buy a blade online or to your local "making a knife" shop.

According to the Golden Dawn Hermetic Tradition, a ritual should be done before opening the cards and for this, some tools are essential like the tarot wand and a tarot box or pouch. We will make the wand and the box ourselves.
