This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a netherite pickaxe with screenshots and step-by-step instructions.

In Minecraft, a netherite pickaxe is a new tool that was introduced in the Nether Update. It will be the most durable of all of the pickaxes which means that it will last the longest before being destroyed. A netherite pickaxe has attack damage of +6 when used as a weapon. Starting in Minecraft 1.20, the way to craft a netherite pickaxe has changed and now includes the new smithing template as an ingredient.

Let’s explore how to make a netherite pickaxe.

Item ID and Name

Minecraft Java Edition (PC/Mac)

In Minecraft, a netherite pickaxe has the following Name, ID and DataValue:

(Minecraft ID Name)
Data Value Stack Size Version
Netherite Pickaxe
1 1.16 – 1.20
  • Description is what the item is called and (Minecraft ID Name) is the string value that is used in game commands.
  • Data Value (or damage value) identifies the variation of the block if more than one type exists for the Minecraft ID.
  • Stack Size is the maximum stack size for this item. While some items in Minecraft are stackable up to 64, other items can only be stacked up to 16 or 1. (NOTE: These stack sizes are for vanilla Minecraft only. If you are running a mod, some mods may change the stack size for an item.)

Attack Damage and Durability

Attack damage is the amount of damage the item will deal when attacking a mob.

Durability represents how long the item will last. For tools, weapons and transportation, durability is the number of useful actions before the item is destroyed. For armor items, durability is the number of hits (that can be blocked by armor) before the item is destroyed. So the higher the durability number, the longer the item will last.

The following table shows the attack damage and durability for each pickaxe in Minecraft:

Name Attack Damage Durability
Netherite Pickaxe 6 2031
Diamond Pickaxe 5 1561
Iron Pickaxe 4 250
