Read on to understand how you can effortlessly make each of these swords in Minecraft.

In Minecraft, you can only get a sword and use it if you craft it. Technically, you’ll need a crafting table to make every sword except the Netherite sword, which requires a Smithing Table.

In addition, you’ll also need one stick to craft every sword except for the Netherite sword. Let’s look at how you can make each of the swords one by one.

You’ll need wooden planks and a stick to craft the wooden sword. You can use wood planks like wrapped, crimson, dark oak, acacia, jungle, birch, spruce, or oak planks. Wooden planks are very easy to get. All you need to do is punch a tree and get the oak wood. After that, you can turn one piece of oak wood into four wooden planks.

  • In the 1st row, place one wooden plank in the center box.
  • In the 2nd row, place one wooden plank in the center box.
  • In the 3rd row, place one stick in the center box.

Stone Sword

To make a stone sword, you’ll need two cobblestones. Therefore, you’ll have to mine two pieces of the stones. First, you will need to make a pickaxe that you can use to obtain the cobblestone you need for a stone sword. Cobblestones are not challenging to find because caves are lines with them. They are any of the gray blocks found in a cave. You’ll then place the two cobblestones replacing the wooden planks in step two above and a stick on the crafting table.

Iron Sword

Iron Sword

To make an iron sword, you’ll have to mine and find iron blocks. To do this, you will gather three pieces of cobblestone to craft a stone pickaxe. After crafting the stone pickaxe, you’ll go into a mine to find two blocks of iron ore. Remember that an iron block can only be mined using a stone pickaxe or any pick above a stone pickaxe. After mining the iron ore, you can place them in the furnace to obtain iron ingots.

With the two iron ingots, open your crafting table and place the two ingots and a stick to make an iron sword.

After making the diamond sword, you can use it to make a nethrite sword. Making a netherite sword requires a different process from the swords discussed above. This is because it requires different items.
