"It can break apart branches.
After its level goes up, it
can also split stumps.
―The Song Hour

The Ax is a type of tool in Harvest Moon: Back to Nature.

Depending on the level, it can be used for chopping branches and splitting stumps. It can be upgraded by giving the appropriate ore, along with a fee, to Saibara at the Blacksmith Shop. Every 100% allows a specific upgrade (indicated by a miniature ore icon). Tool upgrade levels are displayed in the tools menu.
