The Pickaxe is a tool in Stardew Valley. It is obtained at the beginning of the game.

It is used mainly for breaking stones and picking up placed equipment or furniture items (such as floors and sprinklers). It is also used to un-till soil that has been tilled with a Hoe.

With each upgrade level, the number of hits required to break stones is reduced and bigger stones may become breakable.

Using the pickaxe on a Monster will deal a small portion of damage, similar to other weapons.
