The scythe harvests 6 plants in a 3 x 3 block area and is the most efficient way to harvest plant resources, including grass and crops when farming. The scythe can also be used to harvest products from animals.


The scythe can be used instead of a knife when butchering animals.

  • Note: The scythe has no mining speed variant. The metal used to create the item affects durability, but has no effect on the rate of harvest.


Scythes can be placed in tool racks.
