Shears are a tool that allows players to break leaves faster. Using shears on leaves breaks not only the leaf block the shears were used on, but also all others in a 3 x 3 x 3 cube centered on the targeted block. They can be very useful for a player wishing to gather many sticks or saplings at once. There are no ceramic molds for shears so they must be made on an anvil.
There are several variants that you can craft. Each variant has a different durability and attack power. Shears can be made from metal via smithing. Shears are one of the few tools where the tool is created directly rather than by smithing a head and then adding a handle.
