Shovels or Spades are tools, and are the fastest item that can dig Dirt, Grass Blocks, Sand, Gravel, MyceliumPodzol and Snow. They are also used in making Grass Paths by tapping on Grass Blocks.


  • Sticks + 1 Wooden Plank/ Gold Ingot/ Cobblestone/ Iron Ingot/ Diamond => 1 Shovel


  • Since Update 0.9.0, there is a glitch where occasionally, a stone shovel will have the digging speed of a diamond shovel.
  • As of 0.11.0, shovels are also used as paddles for boats.
    • Earlier, a separate item called Paddles were used.
  • They are the only way to obtain Snowballs.
