The wand of Severus Snape was of unknown length, wood and core material.

During his years as Hogwarts student, he became an incredibly skilful and powerful wizard, managing to create several spells of his own invention, many of which were dark charms, such as the highly dangerous curse Sectumsempra.[1][2]

As a Hogwarts professor, he participated as Gilderoy Lockhart's "helper" in his Duelling Club in 1992, disarming him in front of several students and disintegrating a snake conjured by Draco Malfoy to attack Harry Potter.[3]

In 1994, Sirius Black took this wand after Harry, Ron, and Hermione disarmed Snape in the Shrieking Shack. He then used it to reveal Scabbers as Peter Pettigrew.[4]
