Flint was added to Minecraft in 2010 during the indev phase of the game’s development, and was originally only used to craft flint and steel. During alpha, a second recipe was added that allows you to create arrows with flint, and then in the most recent game update it got a texture update. You’ll acquire most of your flint from digging around in gravel, but in a pinch it’s also sometimes possible to grab some from village fletcher chests. Just make sure you replace it later, as they’ve got a livelihood to sustain y’know.

Flint is a mineral obtained from gravel.

Obtaining[edit]

Mining[edit]

When a block of gravel is mined, there is a 10% chance for a single piece of flint to drop instead of the gravel block. When mined with a Fortune-enchanted tool, this chance increases to 14% at Fortune I, 25% at Fortune II, and 100% at Fortune III. Gravel mined using a tool with Silk Touch or gravel fallen on a non-solid block never produces flint.

Trading[edit]

Novice-level Fletcher villagers have a 50%‌[Bedrock Edition only] or 23[Java Edition only] chance to offer 10 pieces of flint for 10 blocks of gravel and an emerald.

Unlike other villager trades, trading flint is not renewable due to the trade consuming non-renewable gravel.

Natural generation[edit]

Flint can be found in 55.8% of village fletcher chests in stacks of 1–3.
