Knowledge Books are utility items that grant crafting recipes when used.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Knowledge Books may only be obtained with the use of commands.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Knowledge Books are mainly useful for mapmakers; they will instantly unlock any recipe for the player who used it. Recipes are specified using the NBT tag Recipes - without it, Knowledge Books cannot be used. This can be applied to any item with a recipe currently in the game, although in the future they may be used to unlock custom recipes.

For example, to give oneself a Knowledge Book that unlocks the recipes for buckets and flower pots, enter this command: /give @p minecraft:knowledge_book 1 0 {Recipes:["minecraft:bucket", "minecraft:flower_pot"]}. To change to different items, replace the bucket and flower_pot with the item which you want.

Knowledge Books are especially useful when /gamerule doLimitedCrafting is set to true, because then any item is only craftable if its recipe is unlocked first.
