The Lead Pickaxe is an early-game pickaxe that is stronger than the Copper and Tin Pickaxes, but weaker than the Silver and Tungsten Pickaxes. Compared to its alternate ore version, the Iron Pickaxe, it has more pickaxe power, deals 1 more damage, and is slightly faster in terms of mining speed. Like other low-tier pickaxes, it can only mine blocks and ores weaker than Meteorite (which requires a pickaxe with at least 50% pickaxe power, e.g. a Tungsten Pickaxe).

Its best modifier is Light for harvesting purposes and Legendary for combat purposes.
