"Cherry and unicorn hair... We think it was one of the last Ollivander ever sold, he vanished next day."
—Neville Longbottom to Harry Potter[src]

Neville Longbottom's second wand was 13" long, made of cherry wood, and had a unicorn hair core. The wand was manufactured by Garrick Ollivander.



Neville with his wand in 1996

Neville purchased this wand in 1996 after his first wand was broken by Antonin Dolohov during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. This new wand may have been one of the last wands made by Garrick Ollivander before he was kidnapped by Death Eaters.[1]

It has been noted that Neville liked his new wand. This is the wand he used during the Battle of Hogwarts, which would mean that this wand was probably used against many Death Eaters.

It can be assumed that Neville kept this wand after the war and continued to use it as Herbology professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


The length of the wood appears to be medium brown in colour and gets darker at the base. The base of the wand is twisted and forms a sort-of make shift handle.

Behind the scenes

  • The cherry tree represents death, rebirth, and new awakenings. Likewise, the wand wood should reflect Neville's character, the "death" of his "innocence", "rebirth" as an Auror and hero in Deathly Hallows and more.
  • Mary Cattermole has the same core and wood as Neville's second.
