Steel pick head detail.png

A steel pick head was obtained as part of a discontinued random event, in which the steel pickaxe head flew off the handle while the player was mining. To fix it, the player had to collect it off the ground and reattach it to the handle.

If players were not paying attention when this occurred, the head would disappear from the ground or be picked up by another player, requiring them to purchase another.

The pick heads were all repaired in an update on 11 September 2014, and the event was discontinued.
