The durability of the two axes is added together, plus an extra 5% durability.

Bonus chest[edit]

A bonus chest may contain wooden and/or stone axes.

Trading[edit]

Iron and diamond axes can be bought from Weapon Smith villagers for emeralds. Diamond axes are enchanted with a level 5-19 enchantment.

Usage[edit]

The axe is used to break wooden items faster.

An axe can also be used as a weapon, in which role it deals 1 (Half Heart.svg) less damage than a sword made of the same material. Usage of the axe as a weapon will deal double durability damage to the axe.
