With all of these values in mind, here are the very best 10 weapons available in Stardew Valley.

10. Lava Katana

Stats
  • Damage: 55 to 64
  • Speed: N/A (Standard sword speed)
  • Defense: +3
  • Weight: +3
  • Critical Chance: .015
  • Critical Power: +25

9. Yeti Tooth

It takes some praying to the RNG lords to acquire the Yeti Tooth. You must be lucky to find it in a box or barrel on floors 80 to 99 in The Mines. Although weaker than the Lava Katana, you don’t have to shell out a hefty amount of gold pieces to get this sword.
Stats
  • Damage: 26 to 42
  • Speed: N/A (Standard sword speed)
  • Defense: +4
  • Weight: N/A
  • Critical Chance: .02

Stats
  • Damage: 75 to 85
  • Speed: N/A (Standard club speed)
  • Defense: +2
  • Weight: +5
  • Critical Chance: N/A
  • Critical Power: N/A

The Obsidian Edge is an endgame sword found on floor 90 in The Mines. Players wanting to wield this weapon should be wary of its slower-than-normal attack speed. However, its higher critical power stat should help compensate for this drawback.

  • Speed: -1
  • Defense: N/A
  • Weight: N/A
  • Critical Chance: N/A
  • Critical Power: +10

In particular, this club costs 75,000 gold pieces, and you can buy it from the Adventurer’s Guild only after acquiring the Galaxy Sword. But hit enemies with this weapon, and you won’t mind the money spent on it.
Stat
  • Damage: 70 to 90
  • Speed: +2
  • Defense: N/A
  • Weight: +5
  • Critical Chance: N/A
  • Critical Power: N/A

  • Speed: +1
  • Defense: +3
  • Weight: +5
  • Critical Chance: .06
  • Critical Power: N/A

It already comes with the Vampiric enchantment, which has a 9% chance of healing a portion of your health by killing enemies. Find this weapon at the Quarry Mines as a random drop from killing Haunted Skulls.
Stats
  • Damage: 30 to 45
  • Speed: -5
