Nether Reactor Core
This article describes content that has been officially made unobtainable. 
It can still be obtained using third-party software. However, this can cause unexpected behavior such as bugs and crashes.
Information icon
This feature is exclusive to Bedrock Edition and New Nintendo 3DS Edition. 
For the obtainable block with the same name in current versions of Minecraft, see Stonecutter.

The stonecutter was a decorative block that had no other functions.


Stonecutters were available in the creative inventory‌[New Nintendo 3DS Edition only], by pick blocking an existing stonecutter in the world or by using third-party software.


An old stonecutter required a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it dropped itself. If mined without a pickaxe, then the mining was slower and it dropped nothing.
