One Hour One Life Wiki

Tools are essential for farming, cooking, smithing and building. Most tools have a limited number of times they can be used before becoming broken. Others, such as Basket, Backpack and Hand Cart, degrade after a certain amount of time. Some tools such as Stone, Bellows and Knife can be used infinitely without degrading or becoming broken.

Tools nearing breaking point will change visually so keep an eye on the condition of the tool and try to put it back where you found it, so that others can find it. Broken Steel Tools will disappear after an hour, or can be combined to get Clump of Scrap Steel and forged into a new Steel Ingot.
