In Tool Parts


  • In newer versions, tools with the "Tasty" attribute have a chance to drop bacon. As of 1.8.8, "Tasty" allows players low on hunger (less than 2.5 bars) to "eat" the tool, sacrificing tool durability for a small amount of added hunger.
  • 2 Pigs with full health make just enough blood for 2 ingots.


  • The large plate for pig iron has a pig face instead of a creeper face.
  • The Pigiron's icon is a pun on the real-life Pig iron.
