The Pickaxe is a tool obtained at the beginning of the game.

It is used mainly for breaking stones and picking up placed equipment or furniture. It can also be used to remove crops, and to un-till soil that has previously been tilled with a Hoe. Striking a planted crop will remove the crop, leaving the underlying tilled soil intact along with any fertilizer present. Striking on tilled soil will revert the tile to an un-tilled state.

The Pickaxe may be upgraded at the Blacksmith. The cost and resource requirements for each upgrade are shown in the table below. 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.
