A wandmaker is an individual who crafts and sells wands for Witches and Wizards. Without wandmakers, our wizarding society would have new become what it is today. The wands they craft and sell will go to young Witches and Wizards who are just beginning their magic education, or Witches or Wizards that need a replacement wand. Wands all cost seven galleons, regardless of wood or core. However, Unicorn Tail Hair wands are sold for ten galleons. The reason for the price difference is unknown, wandmakers speculate it may be due to the how the hair is cut from unicorn.
