The best way to get Silk Touch is to enchant items. I got Silk Touch on a diamond pick with a level 18 enchantment.

Can somebody tell me the range of levels for a stone to be silk touch? And do the words mean anything? (I know it's SGC but is the translation gibberish?)

Hm, maybe try this. It isn't very easy to understand though, you might have to think some time about it :

http://pernsteiner.o...les/Silk_1.html

Source : http://pernsteiner.o...ecraft/enchant/
(Also contains explanation how to read these charts)

Basically it says :
a) If you want to save EXP :
Gold : Level 13
Wood : Level 20
Iron : Level 20
Diamond : Level 22
Stone : Level 26
B) If you want to save Items :
Wood : Level 50
Iron : Level 50
Gold : Level 49
Diamond : Level50
Stone : Level 50

@ Wiebejamin : I'm 100% sure I read it is gibberish. Would have to search for the proof though. P.S Lol, found it, it's in the link above :lol:

At level 30, even if everything goes wrong. You have every chance of getting silk touch. It's level 25 min. And you can lose 25% and gain only 1 level from the item you use and 1 at default. You lose 7 and gain 2, putting you at total of Level 25 enchant which has the possibility of having silk touch. Then you just need to beat the long shot odds.

Easy answer. Best level (best % chance) to get Silk Touch is 50.

I enchanted 3 diamond picks at level 50;
First
Efficiency IV
Silk Touch I

Second
Efficiency V
Unbreaking III

Third
Efficiency IV
Unbreaking III
Fortune III



tl;dr

It's all random.

Nice but you really want Fortune III!

Also what are you looking for a Silk Touch for?
