Knowledge books are utility items that reveal crafting recipes to the player when used.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

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

For example, to give oneself a knowledge book that reveals the recipes for buckets and flower pots, use: /give @s minecraft:knowledge_book 1 0 {Recipes:["minecraft:bucket", "minecraft:flower_pot"]}.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Knowledge books are used to reveal recipes to the player who uses it, by adding it to their recipe book.

Knowledge books are especially useful to mapmakers in conjunction with setting /gamerule doLimitedCrafting to true, because then any item is only craftable if its recipe is unlocked first.
