Draco Malfoy’s Wand

For those of you who want to buy Draco Malfoy's wand I am happy to say that you have several types to choose from. Whether you want a traditional, interactive, toy, or custom wand, you can easily find the right wand for your inner Draco.

Wand Wood

Draco's wand was made from the wood of a hawthorn tree. The hawthorn tree is seen as a bit of a contradiction. As a member of the rose family, hawthorns grow leaves and flowers that have healing properties, yet they also have thorns that injure. Hawthorns are a combination of beauty and danger, much like Draco was.

Wandmakers Ollivander and Gregorovitch both agreed that hawthorn wands are complex and full of intrigue, as are the owners who wield them. They are known for being adept at both healing magic and curses (just like the tree their wood comes from), and that they work best for witches or wizards who are conflicted or experience periods of great turmoil. Again, this sounds like Draco.

Wand Core

The core of Draco's wand contains a unicorn hair. This is interesting because unicorn hair cores are the most difficult of all the cores to turn to the Dark Arts. They are known to produce the most consistent magic of all the cores and unicorn hair wands are the most faithful. When mishandled, unicorn hair wands have been prone to fits of melancholy.

Draco did turn to the Dark Arts, but he found that he wasn't as suited for them as he initially thought (Draco became conflicted - see above about hawthorn wands). As I just said, unicorn hair wands do not want to turn to the Dark Arts, and Draco's use of his for Dark Arts could arguably be a form of  mishandling.

Draco struggled greatly during Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as he was forced to do things he didn't want to do. He seemed to slip into a depression during this time, and I can't help but wonder if his wand was also feeling the way he did, or if his wand's melancholy rubbed off on Draco. Perhaps the purity of the unicorn's hair in his wand was trying to bring out the best in Draco and prevented him from killing Albus Dumbledore.

Wand Design

Draco's wand is plain, and yet it isn't. There is a distinct handle that is black, and the shaft is brown. Between the two is a band of dark brown that separates them. The wand is both simple and elegant.​

Ollivanders Wand

Draco's wand came from Ollivanders Wand Shop in Diagon Alley, and yours can come from there, too. This is the wand that you will see for sale if you are fortunate enough to go to Universal Studio's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It comes in one of Mr. Ollivander's boxes that is lined with a soft material to keep your wand safe for years to come.

Interactive Ollivanders Wand

Interactive wands are Ollivander wands, but unlike traditional Ollivander wands, these can be used to cast magical spells at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios. There is an interactive version of Draco Malfoy's wand that looks identical to the one seen above, except at the tip.

I wrote about interactive Harry Potter wands if you are unfamiliar with them.​ You can read about them here.

Here is a video that I took of my daughter as she used her interactive wand to cast a spell. FYI - This is one of the hidden spell locations...

Some browsers prevent videos from playing so if you are unable to watch the video then I recommend that you try again using a different browser (i.e. Google Chrome or Opera)

Noble Collection Wand

The Noble Collection version of Draco's wand includes a different box than the Ollivanders box and a removable name tag. The Noble Collection wands tend to be a bit darker than the Ollivanders versions and, although I cannot tell for sure, I think that is true with Draco's wand. Noble Collection boxes are lined with a soft material to help protect your wand.

There is also another Noble Collection version that differs from the one seen above - it does not have a name clip and the box does not have the character's name on it. Instead, the box is made to look like the ones seen in Ollivanders Wand Shop in the films.

Narcissa Malfoy's Wand

At the very end of the series Draco was disarmed by and lost his wand to Ron Weasley. His mother Narcissa let Draco use her wand so her wand was also Draco's, even if for a short period of time because her wand was destroyed by Fiendfyre in the Room of Requirements.
