After you upgrade your Hammer and Hoe, you’ll need a better axe. This guide on How To Get A Better Axe In Summer In Mara explains the different quest objectives that you must meet in order to unlock the recipe that allows you to make a better axe, the Metal Axe.
All of the basic tools in Summer in Mara can be upgraded to metal versions. While some are available early in the game, others require a lot of progression before the recipes are unlocked. The Metal Axe is one that takes quite some time before you’re able to unlock it but once you have, it will allow you to cut down rarer trees and get more resources and wood from the trees you grow on your island.
How To Get A Better Axe In Summer In MaraGetting a better axe is a very lengthy process. When you arrive on Qalis you want to focus primarily on Koa Quests. This is working with the old lady in the lighthouse. Keep checking your quest log, if Koa’s Quests aren’t available, focus on Pilly’s quests in the market. You’ll be able to do a few of these before having to complete quests for other characters in order to unlock more quests for Koa and Pilly.
Eventually, the old lady at the lighthouse will ask you to repair a radio. Visit the Blacksmith, she will send you to Pilly for some Batteries. Don’t buy them, speak with her instead. She will ask you to dump something in the ocean. Once that’s dumped, return to her for the batteries. She will then give you the batteries to complete the quest followed by the Metal Axe recipe.
