The Copper Axe is the first axe the player will obtain, and is weaker than the Iron or Lead Axe. Its alternate ore counterpart is the Tin Axe. Newly created characters will spawn with this item in their third inventory slot. Alternately, it can be purchased from the Merchant for 4 SC. Like all axes, it is used to cut down trees, Cacti, Giant Glowing Mushrooms, and Fallen Logs(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and either Agile or Forceful/Strong for combat purposes, due to its unusually low base damage. Though it can obtain the Ruthless modifier, the reduced knockback may be undesirable for early stages of the game.
