The Butcher's Chainsaw is a Hardmode Chainsaw dropped by the Butcher during a Solar Eclipse. The chainsaw emits sparks when used and, will produce sparks that damage nearby enemies provided that it is attacking an enemy, which deals magic damage instead of melee or ranged. It can inflict the On Fire! debuff (Critters won't cause sparks when attacked).

It has an impressive axe power, tied with many other axes, and hamaxes as 150%. While the item's technically considered as a tool by the game files, it also serves as a powerful combat weapon, because it hits enemies many times in quick succession and has high base damage, effectively creating large amounts of DPS. It can also attack multiple enemies simultaneously. It has the highest knockback of any tool in the game.
