Rare and impressive occult ceremonial ritual dagger in bronze, is one of the satanic and demonic weapons created in the 19th century .

Straight, hollowed-out quadrangular blade.
Scabbard entirely in bronze.

During the 19th century, a growing fascination with the devil emerged in various areas of society. The era was marked by a mixture of morbid curiosity and rejection of traditional religious norms. Literary and artistic movements, such as Romanticism, often explored dark and occult themes, reflecting a growing interest in mystery and the macabre. Gothic stories and fantasy novels featured diabolical characters, embodying evil in seductive and disturbing forms. At the same time, scientific advances called religious beliefs into question, giving way to a feeling of existential anxiety and a quest for meaning, sometimes fulfilled by spiritual or esoteric experiments. This fascination with the devil in the 19th century thus reflects the tensions between tradition and modernity, between reason and superstition, in a rapidly changing society.

The owl and the owl, mysterious creatures associated with darkness, haunt the nights in high places such as old bell towers and attics. Their appearances are marked by superstition, being considered the companions of witches and bearers of dire omens. Despite their usefulness in the fight against pests, their link with black magic and occult rites is underlined by their enigmatic appearance and their disturbing cries. Additionally, they are associated with death as psychopomp animals, guiding souls to the afterlife, while their ability to see in the dark enhances their aura of mystery and supernatural power.

The origin of occult ritual weapons dates back to the first human beliefs, and it is common to discover ritual knives made of flint, gold or jade among ancient pre-Columbian civilizations as well as in the Shang civilization. Gallic warriors, under the orders of Vercingetorix, attributed particular importance to their swords, believing that they must be imbued with the blood of a victim to capture its vital energy, thus transforming the blade into an "animated" object. During the Middle Ages, witches used the arthame, a magic knife, to carry out mysterious operations.

It is undeniable that the mysterious daggers of the Romantic era were designed for a specific purpose, for even today they continue to play a significant role in the initiation rituals of certain secret societies and in strange black mass ceremonies .
