Uses

As a tool

The primary role of an Axe is to quicken the collection of wood and wood-type blocks. The Player may choose to do this by hand, but at a severely reduced pace. The most common type of crafted axe is probably the iron axe, as iron is a strong material that can be found in abundance. A gold axe can mine wood and wood items the quickest by far, but it has much lower durability.

What it can cut

As a Weapon

Axes deal more damage than Swords, so the axe is a viable alternative as a weapon. However, there are two drawbacks to using it as a weapon, opposed to a tool:

  • Attacking with an axe (or using it to mine a non-wood block) will cause it to take double durability damage.
  • The recovery time between swings of the axe is longer than that of a sword.

Trivia

  • As of Minecraft 1.9, axes are the strongest weapon. In fact, a wooden axe does the same attack damage as a diamond sword.
  • Axes used to be double sided.
