The Crude Axe is a harvesting tool in Stranded Deep. It can be crafted or found in survivor remains.


A crude axe, the weaker variant of a refined axe, is used for harvesting every material in the game apart from rock and clay nodes. Each hit will reduce its durability by exactly 0.03%, so plan accordingly. Its crafting recipe is:

Currently, only these items can be crafted out of crude axes:

Keep in mind your tool's durability when crafting does not matter, meaning a 1% tool will produce the same output as a 100% one.

It is a better harvesting tool compared to a refined knife, but worse than a refined axe. The amount of hits needed to harvest something depends on the player's havesting level.

Crude axes can be picked up and stored up to 4 per slot.
