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 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.
