We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.
The Axe is a tool used to chop branches, trees and small stumps, as well as for removing or harvesting certain objects, especially important for obtaining Wood. An axe may also be used as a weapon to inflict a small amount of damage. An axe is required to harvest Giant Crops.
The basic Axe is obtained at the beginning of the game. It can be upgraded at the Blacksmith. The cost and resource requirements for each upgrade are shown in the table below.
As of v1.11 on the Riverlands and Forest Farm Maps, some bushes can be destroyed with a Copper Axe (or better).
