What Are Axes Used For?
Axes can be used for a variety of things in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can cut trees down entirely, hit trees for different types of Wood, hit trees to find wildlife, and hit rocks for Iron, Clay, Stone, or Gold Nuggets.
How to Get Your First Axe
To get your first Axe (which will be a Flimsy Axe), you must simply catch two forms of wildlife. Once you’ve done this, head to Tom Nook. Tell him you’ve found a creature, and he will give you the recipe to make a Flimsy Axe.
How to Get Every Type of Axe
There are four different types of Axes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons—the Flimsy Axe, Stone Axe, Axe, and Golden Axe. You’ll want to compare each one’s durability, cost, and how easy it is to craft. This will help you decide which Axe is best for you.
