An authentic Alivan's Wand is far more than the run of the mill magic wand. By choosing an Alivan's Wand you are saying that only the best will do...and your wand will be of the highest quality available...anywhere. Our Master Wandmakers create one-of-a-kind, numbered wands crafted from a solid block of only the finest hardwoods. Each magic wand is housed in an Alivan's Collector's box and comes complete with a velvet wand satchel and a Certificate of Authenticity. Don't settle for just any wand. Be sure your wand is an authentic Alivan's Wand...and remember our magic wands work for good spells only!
