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

In Minecraft, a netherite shovel is a new tool that was introduced in the Nether Update. It will be the most durable of all of the shovels which means that it will last the longest before being destroyed. A netherite shovel has attack damage of +6.5 when used as a weapon. Starting in Minecraft 1.20, the way to craft a netherite shovel has changed and now includes the new smithing template as an ingredient.

Let’s explore how to make a netherite shovel.

  • 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.
