In the first book when Harry was looking for his own wand Ollivander gave he another Phoenix Core Wand a seveteen centimeters... So this show that at that time was another Phoenix besides Fawkes It can be Sparky the l Moutohora Macaw's Pet. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Could be from just about any phoenix besides Fawkes. Ollivander says he uses phoenix feathers as cores, as well as dragon heartstring and unicorn hairs, but that Fawkes only gave the two feathers that are in Harry's and Voldemort's wands. - Nick O'Demus 16:00, November 25, 2009 (UTC)


Would it be alright to have a picture of Harry's wand on here, where it has a Phoenix core? --BachLynn23 21:27, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

Known Wands

When the article says that Harry and Voldemort's wands are the only known wands with Phoenix feather cores, does this mean that in all the books, movies and interviews with J.k. Rowling, no one else is mentioned to have a Phoenix feather core; OR does it mean that they could literally be the only 2 people with phoenix feather cores? The way the paragraph is worded it's hard to make out the meaning. --BachLynn23 21:32, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

It means the only wands mentioned in the series to have phoenix feather wands are owned by Potter and Voldy, not that it is exclusive to their wands only. The General 17:59, May 23, 2011 (UTC)

In the book it is mentioned that the Phoenix feathers in the wands of Harry and Voldemort are from the same Phoenix - Fawkes - and that this Phoenix has only given two feathers. There could be other Phoenixes who gave feathers and that there are other wands with Phoenix feather core, but the Priori Incantatem effect only appears when the Phoenix feathers are from the same Phoenix and not from two different Phoenixes. The same would be when the cores are from the same Unicorn or from the same Dragon etc. Fawkes has only given two feathers, so Harrys wand would only react with Voldemorts wand in Priori incantatem. When he fights against a wizard whose wand also has a Phoenix feather as core, it would not happen because that feather is from another Phoenix. I think that was what Jo meant.

According to Pottermore, this is the rarest core, should the page be edited to say the rarest instead of one of the? --Music Is Life 07:43 am,Oct/16/16

As far as I I understand it, it is the rarerst of the ones Ollivander uses, not the rarest in the world. --Rodolphus (talk) 09:13, October 16, 2016 (UTC)
