The Drax (known as the Hamdrax before v1.2) is a tool which is crafted from Hallowed Bars and one each of the souls dropped by the mechanical bosses. This hybrid is the second best drill, but is not the strongest axe in the game (this slot is occupied by The Axe). Like all drills, it cannot be reforged with any prefix that increases size (which includes "Legendary"), leaving its best possible prefix as "Godly". It is a great tool for mining and cutting down trees. It is the second best combination of a Pickaxe and an Axe, only being surpassed by the Picksaw and Laser Drill, which has 210% Pickaxe power and 125% Axe power and a faster use time. It is also the fourth best pickaxe by pickaxe power in the game, second only to the picksaw, luminite pickaxes, and laser drill.


  • Much like the Hamaxe, the Drax's name is a portmanteau of the tools whose purposes it serves: Drill and Axe. "Dr" as in Drill, "Ax" as in Axe.
    •  Before 1.2, the Drax was called Hamdrax, a portmanteau of hammer, drill and axe. The hammer part was removed due to half slabs coming out.
  • The pickaxe variant is called a Pickaxe Axe.
  • Although the Drax is surpassed by the Molten Hamaxe in terms of axe power, it has a much higher speed, allowing it to chop trees much more efficiently than almost any other wood-cutting tool.
  • The Drax can mine every block instantly except for spikes, Mythril Ore, Orichalcum Ore, Adamantite Ore, Titanium Ore, Chlorophyte Ore, and blocks with vegetation on them, for which it takes a small delay.
  • The Drax cannot mine Lihzahrd Bricks.
  • Highest Prefix for Drax is "Godly".
  • The Drax has an extremely rare drop from Presents on the Mobile Edition.
  • The Hamdrax can also be obtained in the mobile version's Shadow Chests, but it is also very rare.
