The Axe is a pretty useful tool in Minecraft when it comes to chopping wood and breaking wooden items. But, what if we upgrade it to the highest possible level, making it a Netherite Axe. How do we do this, and what effects does this have?
Axe in Minecraft:
An axe is a tool mainly used to break wood-based blocks and remove the surface layer of certain blocks. It can also be used as a melee weapon since it deals a decent amount of damage. It can be made of wood, cobblestone, gold, iron, diamonds and upgraded with Netherite. The better material you use, the more damage you can deal with it. An axe can also be repaired in an anvil by adding units of the tier’s repair material.
Netherite in Minecraft:
Netherite is a rare material from the Nether, used primarily to upgrade diamond gear. It can be found only in the Nether dimension meaning that making a portal is required if you want to obtain the material. Netherite items are more powerful and durable than diamond, can float in lava, and cannot burn – which is why Netherite Armor is so sought-after. After being found in the Nether, scraps can be smelted from ancient debris.
There are four types of Netherite items:

Now that we know a bit about Netherite, let’s see what a Netherite Axe is, and primarily, what can we do with it and how can we make it?
Netherite Axe is a tool in Minecraft, having all the properties and abilities as the regular axe. The difference is that Netherite axe is an upgraded version of a normal Diamond Axe and it cannot burn in lava. It has higher durability and the upgrade makes it faster when used.
How to make a Netherite Axe:
It takes one Netherite Ingot and one Diamond Axe and one Smiting Table to make a Netherite Axe in Minecraft. First, we will learn how to make a Diamon Axe. It can be made in the following way:
- Open crafting table.
- Place two diamonds in the first row.
- Place one diamond and one stick in the second row.
- Place one stick in the middle of the third row.
- Pick up your diamond axe.

Now that we have a Diamond Axe and obtained a Netherite Ingot, it’s time to upgrade our Diamond Axe into a Netherite one. It can be upgraded in the following way.
- Open smiting table.
- Place diamond axe in the first field.
- Place netherite ingot in the second field.
- Pick up your netherite axe.

As well as any kind of axe, a Netherite Axe can also be used to break off wood-based blocks, remove the surface layer of certain blocks or as a deadly weapon.
We hope you learned how to make a Netherite Axe in this article, and happy mining!
