Demand has started to outstrip supply for Wand-quality Ash wood, due to the growing extinction of the tree, yet it is in constant entreaty, due to its long history of creating powerful wands. The ancient Welsh Druids and Norse wizarding communities held this wood in particularly high regard. The wand of Ash cleaves to its one true master, they are “one generation wands” and should never be passed on or gifted from the original owner, because it will lose it's power and skill. Old superstitions regarding wands rarely bear close examination, but through experience I have found that the old rhyme regarding Rowan, Chestnut, Ash and Hazel wands (Rowan gossips, Chestnut drones, Ash is stubborn, Hazel moans) contains a small portion of truth. Those witches and wizards best suited to Ash wands are not, in my experience, lightly swayed from their beliefs or purposes. However, the brash or over-confident witch or wizard, who will often insist on trying wands of this prestigious wood, will be disappointed by its effects. The ideal owner may be stubborn, and will certainly be courageous, but never crass or arrogant.
