Armors and weapons are among the most important pieces of equipment in Minecraft, especially in higher difficulties. In the beginning, a piece of wooden armor and a wooden sword might be just enough.

However, as the game progresses, you will meet stronger enemies that hit way harder and have tons of HP. To deal with them you are going to need stronger items. The Netherite Sword is one of the strongest weapons in Minecraft with great durability and damage per hit. In this article, we will show you how to make a Netherite Sword in Minecraft.

Unlike other weapons, you cannot craft a Netherite Sword directly. The only way to get a Netherite Sword is by upgrading a Diamond Sword using a smithing table. Players can craft a smithing table from four planks of any type and two iron ingots.

Open the smithing table, place the Diamond Sword into the first slot and a Netherite ingot in the other slot. Pull the Netherite Sword from the third slot into your inventory.
