Wicca Online Community For Pagans and Wiccans


Random question about pagan tools. What are the weirdest tool/s you've ever saw? We all know about the "normal" tools athame/sword/wand/staff/cauldron/chalice/broom/censer/bell, but I'm curious if anyone has had a chance to see or use any tool they would consider odd. I'm just super curious about interesting things.

I was racking my brains trying to come up with something, but I realized that it would take a great deal for me to consider something "weird" in the context of Pagan ritual! Especially since I've been to some rituals done by the D.C. Radical Faeries. I suppose I've seen some stuff that was rather incongruous in the context. I knew of someone who used a Jewish kiddush cup as their chalice, for example. 

Oh I guess I should be more specific then? How about tools that aren't the starter set kind of tools? Think that would be a better way to state it?

Gotcha! I guess these days, a lot of eclectics and people outside traditional Wicca will see a scourge as an unusual tool. It's not something you normally come across out of that context, and its presence makes some people think that trad Wiccan circles must involve some kind of BDSM orgy. (Hint: they don't.) My own scourge is made of a good stick for a handle, with a piece of leather cut into long thin strips nailed around it, so that it looks like a little flail or flogger.

The stang is a tool that's rarely seen outside its context of traditional witchcraft (not the same as Wicca). I am not an initiate of a group of that path, so I don't know much about its use. It's a forked staff.
