"A strong cutting tool with good durability. Useful for cutting trees."

The axe is a durable tool found in Stranded Deep. It is a more durable "upgrade" of the crude axe, and can be found in lockers or toolboxes strewn about on shipwrecks.

The axe takes eight hits to chop down a palm tree, two less than the crude axe and three less than the machete, making it the most efficient tool for cutting down trees. It can also be used to hunt sharks, taking ten hits to kill a Tiger Shark and eighteen for a Great White.

Trivia Edit

  • Axes can be stored in walls by dropping the axe while facing one.
  • In the current build, like most tools, up to four axes can be stored in the same inventory slot, even if they each have varying degrees of durability.
  • Like other loot items, despite spending a considerable amount of time inside underwater shipwrecks, the axe manages to remain almost completely well-preserved, to the point where it is durable enough to cut down several trees and plants with ease, as well as hunt fully-grown sharks.
