Jumbo Lignum Vitae Street Wand
Why the most magical wand-wood you can use is Lignum Vitae, or the "wood of life."
Lignum Vitae has a history with mystery. The wizard Merlin's staff was made of it. In his book, "The Royal Touch," Jim Cellini describes breaking "an average of five wands per month, wands purchased from the local magic stores" before he had his first batch made of Lignum Vitae. The new wands held up to Cellini's demanding performances. Cellini's only problem with his Lignum Vitae wands is that people kept on stealing them, convinced they have real magic powers.
An extremely slow growing tree, Lignum Vitae is known as the hardest, densest wood in the world. The bark has traditional medicinal purposes, and the ironwood produced from the trunk has been used as ball bearings in sea vessels, as well as truncheons for the British Police.
Most wood floats in water. Lignum Vitae is among the rare ironwoods that actually sinks in water. It's so dense, it polishes smooth like marble. Imagine how much fun you'll have, practicing your favorite magic with wands with wood that feels like stone. And imagine how amazed your audiences will be, seeing a real life magic wand in action.
American Baseball bats are made of Hickory, one of the toughest domestic hardwoods. Hickory has a Janka Hardness Rating of 1,800lb. Lignum Vitae ironwood has a Janka Hardness Rating of over 3,600lb! Over TWICE as hard. You'll be able use it as a "thumper" like Cellini, with confidence.
