Why did I even make a pitchfork this fancy?


The Snazzy Pitchfork is a variant of the normal Pitchfork that has four times as much durability and requires Gold instead of Flint, allowing Flint to be saved for other uses. It requires 2 Gold Nuggets and 4 Twigs to craft and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. Snazzy Pitchfork has 800 uses, 4 times as many as the normal Pitchfork.

Once the Pitchfork is equipped, a square outline will appear on the ground showing the patch that the cursor is hovering over, along with a prompt. Right-clicking will dig up the outlined terrain, leaving a barren patch in its place. Turf items can only be placed on this sort of barren terrain. 

The Pitchfork has 200 uses (800 for snazzy pitchfork), which means that each time it digs up a turf, it will lose 0.5% durability. It can also be used as a weapon which deals 17 damage but suffers higher durability loss per hit (4%). 

In Don't Starve, a Turf's instant availability and decent fuel value, coupled with the Pitchfork's high durability and speed, makes Turfs one of the easiest options for fueling Campfires and Fire Pits. Turfs are not renewable, however. In Don't Starve Together, Turfs have a significantly lower burn time (7.5s instead of 45s), making it a weak method for fueling, although it can be used in the same way as Pine Cones in that the player will likely have an excess of them for no other purpose than fuel.

Dug up Turf can be replaced with other kinds of Turfs (e.g. Wooden Flooring). This is useful for decoration or for preventing Lureplants and Eyeplants from spawning.

The digging animation for the Pitchfork can be cut short by moving after the player digs up anything. This speeds up the process of mass-clearing turf when holding spacebar.
