Shearly delightful.


Shears are a tool exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. They can be crafted in the Tools Tab using 2 Twigs and 2 Iron Ore. They can be used to trim a variety of things, including:

The main benefits of Shears are the increased yield and decreased harvesting time when used compared to a Machete and Razor.

Shears are more effective than its counterparts:

  • Tallgrass - Shears clip once and give two cut grass, a machete strikes 3 times for 1 cut grass.
  • Hedges - Shears give two clippings, a razor gives one clippings but the razor has infinite durability.
  • Creeping vines - Shears clip 3 times for outside vines and 2 times for inside vines, a machete strikes 12 times for outside vines and 4 times for inside vines.

The materials for crafting shears are renewable.
