The wand of Igor Karkaroff was of unknown length and materials. While Karkaroff was described as being proficient in the Dark Arts, his only demonstration of magic was when he conjured a four for Harry's score in the first task of the Triwizard Tournament.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Given Igor Karkaroff's accent, he may have acquired his wand in mainland Europe where wands made by Gregorovitch are more common.
  • Karkaroff's wand is intricately carved and embellished, demonstrating the "showy aesthetics" that are characteristic for the wands of Death Eaters.[3]
  • It is unknown if Karkaroff used this wand while serving Voldemort, or if it was obtained sometime after his release from Azkaban.
