Sickle ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? No
Weight 55s
Danger Level 1
Material Iron

Sickles are a type of axe made of iron. Their default stats are (+0, 1d4+2), though they can vary from this by +/-3, or more if it has a prefix or suffix.


A sickle counts as an axe, and there are worse ones out there. They also can be given to farmers, and in return you will receive a large ration.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Their two uses (as a weapon/food source) mean sickles can be fairly useful early in the game. However, by the time you reach the Arena, food should be plentiful and weapons abundant, so their usefulness peters off around that point.
