The wand of Bartemius Crouch Senior was of an unknown length, wood, and core materials. If you pay close attention to the scene where Barty draws his wand while investigating Harry at the “scene of the crime,” he actually draws it from a cane/walking stick, quite like Lucius’s and in the same manner. This is the reason for the large handle as it feeds directly into his cane. Mr Crouch used this wand while investigating the Death Eaters' attack at the 1994 Quidditch World Cup.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Like most witches and wizards and witches in Britain, Mr Crouch likely purchased his wand from Ollivander's.
  • The wand prop replica used in the films has one of the thickest handles of any character's wand seen throughout all eight movies.
  • Along with Peter Pettigrew's wand, Mr Crouch's wand is one of the few wand props from the films that is not sold by The Noble Collection.


Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 9 (The Dark Mark) - "“Do not lie, sir!” shouted Mr Crouch. His wand was still pointing directly at Ron, and his eyes were popping — he looked slightly mad. “You have been discovered at the scene of the crime!”"
