Fred Weasley's wand was 14" long, made of an unknown wood, and unknown core materials.[1] The wand was manufactured by Garrick Ollivander.


Like most wizards and witches in Great Britain, he likely purchased it from Garrick Ollivander at the age of eleven before beginning his education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1989.

Fred used his wand throughout his lifetime, including in combat in the Battle of Hogwarts. It is unknown what happened to his wand after he was killed.

The wand was most likely buried with Fred or destroyed during the battle.


The wand is dark in colour and looks like a stick with a pine cone glued to the end[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Despite having what looks to be a pine cone for a handle, the wood is not likely to be pine as that wand wood chooses owners destined for long lives, whereas Fred died young.
  • It has also been suggested that Fred's Wand may be made of dogwood due to the description of this wand wood on Pottermore.
