The Sharpening Station is a furniture item that, when placed and pressed Open / Activate on, applies the Sharpened buff, which increases armor penetration of all melee weapons by Desktop and Mobile versions 12 / Console Version 4. This lasts for 10 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console version), or by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version).

It can be found in Underground Cabins in the Underground Jungle. On the Desktop version Desktop version, it can also be purchased from the Merchant for 10 during Hardmode.


  • The armor penetration bonus also applies to damage done by summoned minions, but only while the user is holding a melee weapon. It also applies to projectiles fired from magic and ranged weapons, however, it only applies to the projectiles when you are holding a melee weapon after having shot the projectiles already making it not suitable for practical use.



  • Desktop 1.4.1: Can now be purchased from the Merchant during Hardmode.
