The shovel is a tool used to break down earth, sand, gravel, clay, snow and soul sand faster. Shovels can be made from wooden boards, gold bars, rubble stone, black stone, iron bars, and diamonds. Unlike the other blades, netherite blades cannot be made directly; they can only be made by upgrading a diamond shovel with netherite bars in a forging table.

Extraction [edit]

Occurrence [edit]

ironcan shovel in chests of villages and enchants can be found in final settlements. EnchanteddiamondShovels can be found in Chests at End Settlements. EnchantedgoldShovels can be found in chests of portal ruins. EnchantedNetheriteshovels can be found in bastion ruins.

Manufacture [edit]

Two shovels can also be repaired without an anvil by combining them in the crafting field, but one shovel and possibly the enchantment are lost. This is only useful when combining two worn blades, which then result in a less worn blade. The remaining shelf lives of the two blades are added together. This combination only works with shovels made of the same material.

New with version 1.17: Broken depth slate can be used to make the stone shovel.

Use [edit]

The shovel is deployed by focusing on a block and holding down the left mouse button. The shovel is best used for earth, sand, gravel, clay and snow, because with other blocks it does not provide any real effect or time advantage compared to mining with bare hands and would therefore wear out more quickly.

You can use a shovel to turn blocks of grass into trails by right-clicking once on a block of grass.
