Shears can also be used on LeavesVines, dead bushes, and Tall Grass to obtain the respective block. It can also be used to destroy wool blocks fast while it takes no durability damage.

Trivia

  • Unlike most other tools, Shears have no upgrades.
  • Shears mine Stone slightly faster than hand.
  • Easter Egg:: After Update 0.12.1, Shears can be used to remove the head of a Snow Golem.
  • Shearing Sheep is more efficient than killing them, because if you were to kill a Sheep it would only drop 1 Wool upon death, while with Shears you can get from 1-3 Wool, and the Sheep regrow their Wool, making it renewable.
  • Shears are unique in that they are one of few tools to not require Sticks to craft, the others being Flint and SteelClocks and Compasses.
  • Shears can also be used to shear Mooshrooms for red mushrooms.
