Metal Chisel

Metal Chisels can only be made from tool metals. They can be cast in ceramic molds, or worked on a metal anvil.


Main article: Casting

Bismuth Bronze, Black Bronze, Bronze, and Copper Chisels can be cast using a Vessel or a Ceramic Mold instead of working on an anvil.

Place an empty or partially filled Chisel mold into the slot to fill it with metal from the vessel. It takes 100 units of metal to completely fill an empty Ceramic Mold. The text in the vessel's GUI will be updated to show the amount of metal remaining in the vessel.


Unshaped Ingot

To fill the Chisel mold from a ceramic ingot mold, right click the liquid unshaped ingot to open the casting interface:

Put the ceramic Chisel mold in the second input slot and wait for the filled mold to finished.

Main article: Working

Chisel Heads can also be crafted by using ingots on an anvil with a hammer. This is the only option for higher tier metals that cannot be cast. The durability depends both on the metal used and the skill of the smith forging the tool.

Finishing the Chisel

Template:Grid/Inventory Table


By default, to use a chisel you must have a hammer in your 'off-hand' slot (the one that when empty has a shield icon in it). If you don't have a hammer in that slot the chisel will not work and on the right of your toolbar you'll see a triangular yellow warning symbol.

Chisel's, when held in the hand, have 3 modes of use. The default key for changing tool modes is "M"

  • They can be used to shape Raw Stone, Cobblestone, Smooth Stone and Plank Blocks into staircase blocks. Simply place the block into position and right click to dig a portion out of the block and turn it into stairs. Corner stairs can still be made if the surrounding blocks are turned into stairs. The stair block can be then mined and moved like vanilla minecraft.
  • They can smooth raw stone into smooth stone. Smooth stone does not yield to gravity and will not cause cave-ins. Right click on a block of raw stone to cause the conversion. Note that stone blocks cannot be smoothed if it has two or more raw stone blocks atop the block you wish to smooth
  • Chisels can be used to turn a full block into a half block. It has the same material restrictions and functions as the staircase mode

Chisels can also be used turn rocks into bricks. These bricks can be used along with mortar to craft brick blocks and brick walls.
