Spades are crafted tools used by a Blockhead. Their primary purpose is to collect or dig into dirt, sand, or other soft ground materials at a faster rate than by hand. Spades can also be used on small plants for digging and farming. Used over time, a spade will slowly degrade and eventually be destroyed. The amount of use of a spade before being destroyed is related to the quality of spade and materials used.
Spades are crafted at a ツール Bench|tool bench. They have increasing durability based on the material being used to craft the spade. For an increase in quality, a Blockhead will need to upgrade the ツール Bench|tool bench to the appropriate level before crafting the desired spade. Gold spades have an added benefit of picking up additional items when used on blocks.
To record the items and frequency of items received when using a gold spade on a block, a comprehensive chart has be constructed. Gold spades have produced bonuses on dirt (and clay and flint deposits) and sand at an estimated rate of 5% per stroke.
