Walnut and Oak Wand: 9"

This Walnut and Oak wand, 9" long, supple and smooth, was made with aspiring young witches and wizards in mind - short, sturdy, and blunt. The combination of Oak and Walnut, besides looking really cool, should be good for long lasting shield charms and counter-curses. Of course, Professor Umbridge might say your counter curses are improperly named, and should just be called curses, but then nobody likes her so who really cares, right? If you want to know how well Oak works as a wand shaft, just ask Hagrid.

Price: $18.50

Could clarify for me the walnut wood used on the beautiful oak and walnut wands? Is it Eastern Black Walnut? Is there a difference between walnut and back walnut or a difference in appearance between the two?

There are a couple of web pages I would refer you to - see wikipedia's article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walnut and another at http://www.thewoodbox.com/data/wood/walnutinfo.htm.

To sum up, I think the walnut I used regular North American "walnut" which is the same as "black walnut" - of course, there are many species and subspecies. The grain varies greatly from tree to tree, and sometimes you can get sapwood, which is almost white if it's air cured. Kiln-dried sapwood gets darker more like the heartwood. I hope that answers the question. If not, read up on those web pages.
