A note upon the Ceremonial Sword of Spiritual Chivalry and Magic
While most people will pay attention to the quality of the blade, length etc of a sword, magical or common ones, very few will give the same quality of attention to the scabbard. The scabbard is a tool itself and represent in simbolic form your state of mind, consciousness and level of awareness being also attached to yourself even when you loose or break a blade. Then if you believe also that a magical sword is not only a tool to defend yourself but a faculty of the human intellect called reason and discrimination, will be easier to understand the scabbard as a state of being in and at peace, permanent awareness, self centered connection with the whole, treasuring a sharp virtue. The same concept applied to emotions and feelings will give birth, by the power of the geroglyphic imagery, to a new kind of soul…gift of Athena’s Wisdom.
