How to Make a Netherite Pickaxe in Minecraft

Minecraft is a game that is simple to learn but difficult to master. There are lots of hidden gems in the form of ores and other blocks in the Minecraft game that you can mine for your advantage but doing that requires a necessary tool such as a netherite pickaxe. It is the most durable pickaxe with the attack damage of +6. This tool is very durable, and you can mine a lot faster. Other than that, you can also use this tool to kill other mobs for your survival.

Required Materials to Make the Netherite Pickaxe

There are two main items that are needed to make a netherite pickaxe, the first one is the diamond pickaxe and the second one is the netherite ingot.

How to Make a Diamond Pickaxe

For a diamond pickaxe, you will need 3 diamonds that can be easily mined with the diamond or iron pickaxe. The second item is 2 sticks whereas 2 wooden planks will give you 4 of that.

If you don’t have the iron pickaxe, then you can make one by placing 3 iron ingots and 2 sticks on the crafting table.

How to Make a Netherite Ingot

You can’t make the netherite ingot without going into the nether world as you can find all the required items from there. To go there you need to make a nether portal and for that, we have prepared a detailed guide on that.

After understanding the method of reaching the ancient world, the next thing that you need is to get the diamond pickaxe that we have already discussed in the previous section. The reason is that the blocks of ancient debris that are necessary to make the netherite ingot can only be mined with the diamond pickaxe and its recipe has already been discussed in the previous section.

How to find the Ancient Debris: After reaching the nether world you need to find the blocks of ancient debris that are mostly found at the value of the Y coordinate of -14 or close to this. If you are not familiar with this block then you can get the basic idea by looking at the image below. Now you need to find this block and mine at least 4 of this ancient debris

How to Make a Netherite Scrap: You need to place the ancient debris inside a furnace with a fuel that will give you a netherite scrap which is the first main item of making the netherite pickaxe. If you are unaware of the furnace then you can make it by placing 8 cobblestones on the crafting table.

How to Make the Gold Ingots: the second item are the 4 gold ingots for which you need to mine the golden ore. You can easily find the golden ore inside the nether world by exploring this biome from Y = 0 to 31 whereas you can mine it using an iron pickaxe or a higher one.

How to Make a Netherite Ingot: As you have collected the required items, now you can make a netherite ingot by placing these two items on the crafting table as shown below.
