Wand from the Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals

A friend and fellow magician has two make that ONE ebony wands available. He will engrave them and gold-leaf the letters to make it according to the specs in Trithemius' Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals if you want him to for an extra charge, or you can (attempt to) do it yourself. If you're interested, let me know and I'll pass on your interest to him.

He made me one, and it's truly awesome. It's cut to the exact length of my forearm from the elbow to my fingertips. It's exactly the image from the Modern Angelic Grimoire. I'm in the process of consecrating it now. It's heavy! Feels like a metal rod more than wood. Very cool stuff here.

The guy making these is a traditional grimoirist. He has made everything in the Lemegeton's Goetia to spec, and has reported some very interesting results. His experience and craftsmanship are excellent. There's not enough light to take a decent picture, so I'm uploading one of his.

Update: The last one's gone, but he may take special orders. If you're interested, let me know and I'll pass it on.
