==Types==
+
=== Repairing ===
Successive types include the abilities of previous ones but faster.
+
Two matching pickaxes can be combined in the crafting grid to combine their durability. This can also be done through use of the [[anvil]], to preserve enchantments.
 
 
===None===
 
Collects: glow stone, odd rock, bone.
 
  
Breaks: netherrack, sandstone, rock/cobble, coal, iron, lapis, redstone, obsidian, topaz, end stone, ender gem.
+
== Usage ==
:You can punch your way out of a bad spawn, but you won't get anything useful from it.
+
=== Mining ===
 +
Pickaxes are used to mine stone related blocks and ores. These blocks that pickaxes mine faster would usually not drop if not mined with one. Successive types include the abilities of previous ones but can mine faster, and give the player the ability to collect drops from some blocks.
  
===[[Wood]] (planks)===
+
Note:
Collects: rock/cobblestone (as cobblestone), coal, sandstone, coral, end stone.
+
* [[Bedrock]] cannot be broken by any means in Survival mode.
 +
* Some blocks drop nothing even with a diamond pickaxe, such as the [[mob spawner]].
  
Breaks: netherrack, iron, lapis, redstone, obsidian, topaz, ender gem.
+
Here are all the pickaxes in order of how many blocks they can mine. While the golden pickaxe is the fastest, there are some blocks it can't mine, which only the diamond pickaxe can mine.

Iron pickaxe
Iron ingot Fast Obsidian Glowstone, odd rock ore, bone block, stone/cobblestone (dropping cobblestone). Lapis lazuli ore, redstone ore, gold ore, diamond ore, ender gem ore. It can break anything but obsidian.
