Belladonna Quenched Hexing Nails. By Troll Cunning Forge.


Belladonna quenched hexing nails. Hand forged and stamped with crossbones by blacksmith Marcus McCoy. We work with the philosophy of folk magic and alchemy in our blacksmithing of iron talismans, by in the quench lends its virtues to the iron when hot and fixes them within the iron philosophically as the quench crystalizes and takes the hot iron from being mutable to fixed. These are practices being revived by Troll Cunning Forge. After the quench is completed the infused oils or quench is cleansed from the iron and there is no longer any toxic plant material or in this case, Belladona, left upon the iron. It is non toxic and safe to handle. However the virtues of the plant or various materials used in the quench are philosophically fixed within the Iron from this point forward, according to traditional alchemical philosophy. The nails can be used to curse in a myriad of different ways, or as an apotropaic charm, and as always these are mere examples and the only limit to their utility is your skill and occult creativity.
