Sharpness is an enchantment applied to a sword or axe that increases melee damage.

Usage[edit]

In Java Edition, Sharpness adds 0.5 * level + 0.5 extra damage.

In Bedrock Edition, each level of Sharpness adds 1.25 extra damage.

An anvil is required to apply Sharpness V to wooden, stone, iron, diamond, and netherite tools. Golden tools can get Sharpness V through enchanting.

Damage per hit[edit]

These tables detail how much damage is done per attack based on the level of enchantment used, assuming the target is not wearing armor and the attack is fully charged.‌[Java Edition only] Critical damage is in parentheses.
