The Drax is an alternative to the Pickaxe Axe. Appearances and sounds aside, the two tools are functionally identical. However, unlike pickaxes, most drills cannot be reforged with size, speed, or knockback modifiers, making Demonic the best possible prefix. Drax is the one exception, as it can be reforged with knockback, allowing the Godly prefix.
It is obtained after killing the three Mechanical Bosses and combining their souls with some hallowed bars. In mobile version the Drax, entitled Hamdrax, has a chance of being found in a shadow chest.
Can mine any block except Lihzahrd Bricks.
Its best Modifier is Godly.

- Due to its rapid attack speed, high damage and knockback, it can serve as a melee weapon for low-end close-range targets.
- The Drax is the only drill with knockback.
- It used to be called the Hamdrax as it had 85% hammer power, but as of 1.2 it no longer has hammer abilities. With the removal of the Hamdrax's hammer abilities, there are no tools that function as a hammer, pickaxe/drill, and axe simultaneously. Due to the changes made to the functionality of hammers in 1.2, it seems unlikely any such universal multi-tool will be added in later updates (and as of 1.2.4, there have been no such tools added).
- "Drax" is a portmanteau of words, drill and axe, because it can perform the actions of both.
- The original tooltip for the Drax/Hamdrax was: “Not to be confused with a hamsaw.”
- It can be found in some Shadow Chests thus,making the ability to mine Hardmode ores without crafting drills
- 1.2.3: Recipe now includes one of each of the Souls dropped by the Mechanical Bosses.
- 1.2: Changes:
- Removed Hammer capabilities
- Re-named to "Drax"
- Now only takes Hallowed Bars to craft
- 1.1: Introduced as Hamdrax.
