Using shears allows players to gather sticks and saplings from trees. Shears break leaf blocks in a 3 block wide cube, centered on a targeted block.

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


All tools may be used as weapons, including the shears.


Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar. The tool rack is a specialized wall mounted storage container that allows players to store up to four tools. Shears do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.
