The scythe instantly harvests [[Agriculture|crops]], leaves from [[trees]] and [[straw]] from grass in a small radius (3x3x3) around the block upon which it is used. Using the scythe on crops will destroy the plant, so it is not recommended to use as a tool for harvesting mutli-harvest crops such as [[Tomato]]es or [[Bell Pepper]]s other than to quickly clear the farmland to let it lay fallow or to plant something else. Leaves harvested with a scythe drop [[sapling]]s and [[stick]]s at a slightly reduced rate (4%) compared to manual harvesting (6%).

Obtaining

Metal Scythe

Metal Scythes can only be made from tool metals. They can be cast in ceramic molds, or worked on a metal anvil.

Casting

Main article: Casting

Bismuth Bronze, Black Bronze, Bronze, and Copper Scythes can be cast using a Vessel or a Ceramic Mold instead of working on an anvil.

Main article: Working

Scythe Blades can also be crafted by using ingots on an anvil with a hammer. This is the only option for higher tier metals that cannot be cast. The durability depends both on the metal used and the skill of the smith forging the tool.

Usage

The scythe instantly harvests crops, leaves from trees and straw from grass in a small radius (3x3x3) around the block upon which it is used. Using the scythe on crops will destroy the plant, so it is not recommended to use as a tool for harvesting mutli-harvest crops such as Tomatoes or Bell Peppers other than to quickly clear the farmland to let it lay fallow or to plant something else. Leaves harvested with a scythe drop saplings and sticks at a slightly reduced rate (4%) compared to manual harvesting (6%).

History

Beta
v2 Build 21Added the Scythe.
Using a scythe will clear a 3x3x3 area around of the block that you click on of leaves, which will drop sticks or saplings.
v2 Build 25Sapling drop chance from a scythe increased to 4% from 3%.
v2 Build 46eScythe maximum uses increased by a factor of 3.
Build 53Scythes can be used to harvest crops.
77.0Added using a scythe on tall grass to get straw.
