"AH! I...I just came up with a recipe for a golden axe!"
Player, Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The golden axe is a tool item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As an axe, the player can use this item for 200 times to hit trees for either wood, softwood, hardwood, bamboo piece, young spring bamboo, or wood egg depending on the season, or to hit a rock for items (the item will break once the rock produces no more items). Hitting a tree three times with the golden axe will chop down the tree. The golden axe cannot be used on any players' islands unless they are marked as a Best Friend.

The golden axe can be obtained from crafting, which requires axe and gold nugget. The recipe for this item can be obtained from breaking 100 axes. The physical recipe is unobtainable as of version 1.11.0, and it will disappear if flown or kept between play sessions.

In Happy Home Paradise, no villagers or facility unlock this item for designing. It can only be used once the player's DIY catalog is unlocked after completing the 15th vacation home.
