Flint is a resource that makes Flint and Steel when combined with an Iron Ingot. It can also be used with Sticks and Feathers to make Arrows for Bows.

Obtaining

Flint and steel

Flint and steel

Flint can be obtained by destroying Gravel, whether it's by hand or by tool. Destroying gravel by hand or by TNT has a 10% chance of dropping flint, while using Torches or a Silk Touch tool has a 0% chance. If using a tool with the fortune enchantment, gravel has a higher chance of dropping Flint; at Fortune 3, it is a guarantee.

Uses

Flint is commonly used with an iron ingot, which makes the useful tool Flint and Steel, which is very commonly used to light TNT, activate Nether Portals and set fire to grass, wood, wooden planks, fences, Netherrack, etc. It can also be used in combination with sticks and feathers to make arrows for bows.

Trivia

  • An alternative of obtaining Flint is by placing a block of Gravel (in rows or by itself) and destroying it. The player can then place the gravel again and repeat the process until they obtain Flint.
  • Along with Raw Fish, flint is the only item used in a Villager's service: fishermen will cook raw fish, and fletchers will separate flint from gravel.
