The Picksaw is a Hardmode pickaxe and axe that has a 25*1/4 (25%) / 33.33*1/3 (33.33%), or 12.5*1/8 (12.5%) chance of being dropped by the Golem boss. It can mine all blocks in the game.

Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.



  • The Picksaw has a lower range bonus than the Spectre Pickaxe (which has a +3 range).
  • It has a slower mining speed than the Shroomite Digging Claw (which has a mining speed of 4, i.e. mines blocks 33.33% faster). However, the Picksaw is able to mine Lihzahrd Bricks and has +1 range bonus.
    • Because the Picksaw has a mining speed close to the Shroomite Digging Claw, using items that increase mining speed can bring its speed exceptionally close to the Shroomite Digging Claw, with the added perk of more range, and the ability to mine Lihzahrd Bricks.


  • The Picksaw is referenced in the Drax's tooltip: 'Not to be confused with a picksaw'.
  • Picksaw is a portmanteau of the words pickaxe and saw, which matches its capability to perform the actions of both (just like the Drax serving as both a drill and axe, and the Pickaxe Axe serving as a pickaxe and an axe).
