The creatures hide metal in their flesh and their blood flows like sludge. A simple sword will not do here. -Item description

The falx is a weapon available to players from casting stages of the game. The sword has an attack range of 2.5 m and can be used in melee combat.


The falx is not (generally) used to harvest materials, but can be used to harvest wood and leaf blocks.


Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the falx in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.


Falxes can be either placed in the ground against the wall or can put in the tool rack, a specialized wall-mounted storage container. Falxes do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.


Prior to version 1.17, this weapon was called the "sword" and had a straight blade.
