The Items You Need to Make a Stone Axe in Tears of the Kingdom

First of all, you’ll need to have learned the Fuse skill, and you’ll need to know how to use it. Use our guide for how to fuse weapons if you’re not sure. To make the stone axe in TotK, you’ll need two items: a stone and a stick, branch, sword, or some other compatible weapon.

You can use different items as the axe’s handle, but the stronger the base weapon, the better the axe. You can use a tree branch if you want, but your axe won’t be particularly durable.

As for the stone, you may have to hunt around.You’ll find stones on the ground, but they’re not the same as a boulder or rock. If you’re in doubt, activate Fuse and aim the ability at the item on the ground. That’ll tell you whether it’s a stone, boulder, or so on.

Here is everything you need to know about how to create an axe in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, to make your tree-chopper.

Now, fuse the two items, the stone and whatever you’ve chosen as a handle, and you’ll have an axe. Your axe can be used as a weapon, but we’d advise you hold onto it and just use it on trees and logs. Once you’ve cut down a tree and got a log, use your axe on the log to get a bundle of wood.
