Cooper's reed, or Cattails (not to be confused with the item "cattail tops") are a very important early game item for making containers, rope, and skeps. They have two drops cattail tops and cattail roots.
To harvest the reeds you can break them with your hands, although this destroys the roots. To preserve the roots and allow multiple harvests use a knife. By breaking the roots you can then cook them to make them edible in a pinch. You can also replant the roots, useful for making a cattail farm or for decoration.
