The Picksaw is a Hardmode, post-Golem pickaxe and axe that has a (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 1/4 (25%) / 1/3 (33.33%), or (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 1/8 (12.5%) chance of being dropped by Golem. It can mine all blocks in the game.

Its best modifier is Legendary. However, due to rounding, Legendary, Light, Deadly, Agile, Quick, and Nasty provide equal boosts to mining speed for this tool.


  • The Picksaw is usually the first pickaxe the player can obtain that will break Lihzahrd Bricks, (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) as well as Lihzahrd Traps.


  • 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.
    • As with any mining tool with 7 use time or less, mining speed bonuses and a good modifier can bring the Picksaw to the minimum mining speed of 1, tying 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).
