Ever wondered how to make a scythe in Little Alchemy? Well, wonder no more. You’re about to learn the quick and easy steps to craft a scythe, one of the most useful tools in the game. Little Alchemy is all about combining basic elements to create more complex items, and the scythe is no exception. With just a few simple ingredients and a couple quick steps, you’ll be harvesting wheat, cutting grass and generally reaping the rewards of your new scythe in no time. So grab your stylus or mouse and let’s get crafting. By the end of this short tutorial, you’ll be swinging your new scythe with confidence and wondering why you didn’t make one sooner. The secrets of scythe-making in Little Alchemy await!
Gathering the Ingredients: Earth, Fire, and Metal
To make a scythe in Little Alchemy, you’ll need to gather some basic ingredients: earth, fire, and metal.
First, start with earth and fire to create lava. Let the lava cool and harden into stone. Then, combine stone and fire again to get metal.
- Earth + Fire = Lava
- Lava + Time = Stone
- Stone + Fire = Metal
With metal in hand, you’re ready to make the blade of your scythe. Combine metal and stone to create a blade.
- Metal + Stone = Blade
Next, you’ll need a long handle for your blade. Use wood, which you can make by combining earth and fire. Attach the blade to the handle and you’ve got yourself a scythe!
- Earth + Fire = Wood
- Wood + Blade = Scythe
To recap, gather earth, fire, and metal. Shape the metal into a blade, craft a wooden handle, and join the two together. With some patience, you’ll be harvesting in no time!
Making tools and equipment in Little Alchemy requires starting with the basic elements and building up from there using logical combinations. Pay attention to the hints the game provides and don’t be afraid to experiment. With practice, crafting a scythe and other items will become second nature. Now get out there and start reaping the rewards of your efforts!
Combining Earth and Fire to Create Lava
To make a scythe in Little Alchemy, you’ll need to combine earth and fire to create lava. Here’s how:
First, make sure you have the basic elements of earth and fire. If not, combine energy and empty space to get fire, and combine metal and water to get earth.
Once you have earth and fire, combine them to create lava. Lava is molten rock that forms beneath the earth’s surface. When lava cools and hardens, it creates igneous rock. In Little Alchemy, lava is an important element for creating more complex items.
Now that you have lava, you can use it to make a scythe, a tool used for cutting grass or crops. Here are the steps:
- Combine lava and air to create stone. Stone is a solid, hard material that forms from lava when it cools.
- Combine stone and wood to create a sharp stone. The wood is used to craft a handle for the stone.
- Combine the sharp stone and a stick to create a scythe. A scythe has a long wooden handle with a curved blade at the end, used for cutting grass or crops.
- Combine the scythe and human to enable the human to use the scythe as a tool.
And there you have it – a scythe created in Little Alchemy by combining earth, fire, air, wood, and human. With some basic elements and a little experimenting, you’ll be crafting more complex tools and items in no time! Let me know if you have any other questions about making exciting new discoveries in Little Alchemy.
Cooling Lava Into Stone
To make a scythe in Little Alchemy, you’ll need to first cool down lava into stone. ###Gather lava and water
The ingredients you’ll need are:
- Lava: Fire + Earth
- Water: Already available
Combine lava and water
Once you have lava and water, combine them. This will produce stone.
- Lava + Water = Stone
When lava comes into contact with water, it rapidly cools and hardens into rock. The water absorbs the heat from the lava, causing it to solidify. This process is known as cooling and crystallization. The result is igneous rock like basalt or obsidian, depending on how quickly the lava cooled.
Check your progress
At this point, you should have stone in your inventory. Double check that you have stone before moving on to the next steps to make your scythe.
If you do not have stone, go back and make sure you correctly combined lava and water. Remember, you need both lava (fire + earth) and water (already provided). Check that you have the latest version of Little Alchemy installed and that there were no recent changes to the combination for stone.
Once you have verified you have stone, you can move on to sharpening it into a blade and attaching it to a wooden handle to make your scythe. But cooling the lava into stone is the crucial first step. With the basic elements of fire, earth, and water, you now have the building block to craft more advanced tools and objects in Little Alchemy.
Sharpening the Stone Into a Blade
Once you have the stone and blade elements combined in Little Alchemy, it’s time to sharpen the stone into an actual scythe blade. This process requires patience and precision.
Finding the Right Angle
The angle of the blade is critical to its cutting ability. A blade that’s too steep won’t slice efficiently, while one that’s too shallow won’t cut at all. For a scythe, aim for an angle between 30 to 45 degrees. Hold the stone at different angles to your work surface and check how it cuts into the material. Start with a steeper angle around 45 degrees, then work your way shallower to find the sweet spot.
Sharpening the Edge
With the proper angle selected, you need to hone the edge of the stone to a razor-sharp blade. Use a rough sharpening stone, whetstone, or sandpaper with a coarse grit of around 80 to 200. Rub the stone along the edge using even pressure and long strokes. Check your progress often by carefully running your finger along the edge to feel for sharpness. Be very careful, as the edge will become extremely sharp!
Once you’ve sharpened one side, flip the stone over and repeat the process on the other side. Go slowly and patiently, sharpening in multiple rounds. As the edge becomes more refined, switch to progressively finer grits of sandpaper, finishing with 400 to 600 grit for a polished edge.
To put the final sharpness on your new scythe blade, use a honing compound like jeweler’s rouge or valve grinding compound on a leather strop. Carefully strop the blade using the same angle you sharpened it at. Stropping will polish the edge and make your scythe blade shaving sharp.
With some time and practice, you’ll have a razor-sharp scythe blade ready to cut through any material in Little Alchemy. Be extremely cautious handling the sharp blade, and always cut away from yourself for safety. Your patience in crafting this essential tool will be rewarded with a efficient cutting implement to aid your alchemical experiments.
Attaching the Blade to a Wooden Staff to Make a Scythe
Now that you have the wooden staff and scythe blade, it’s time to attach them together to complete your scythe.
Preparing the Staff
Select a straight wooden staff that is slightly taller than you. Hardwoods like ash, hickory, and oak work well. Use a knife, chisel, or wood rasp to shave one end of the staff into a wedge shape. This will help secure the blade in place.
Attaching the Blade
Hold the blade against the wedged end of the staff at an angle that feels comfortable and balanced for cutting. The blade should extend outward at about a 60 to 75 degree angle. Have an assistant hold the blade in place as you wrap the joint tightly with twine, rope, or wire. As you wrap, check that the blade remains at the proper angle. Secure the wrapping in place with knots or wire.
Testing and Adjusting
Grasp the staff and take a few practice swings with the scythe. Make sure the blade feels securely attached and balanced. The scythe should feel like an extension of your arms as you swing. If the blade feels off, unwrap the joint and reposition. It may take a few adjustments to get it just right.
Once attached, the scythe is ready to use for cutting grass, wheat, and other crops. With some practice, you’ll be swinging like a pro in no time. Be very careful when first learning, as the blade is extremely sharp. Always wear protective gloves and long sleeves.
Using basic materials and some patience in construction, you now have an effective tool for manual cutting and harvesting. Your scythe embodies simplicity and functionality, allowing you to work with a natural rhythm. Enjoy this satisfying, low-tech tool and the benefits of working with your hands.
