the st pickaxe works on anything that st effects, it won't do ice anymore tho. I now have quite a few of these. once I got the blocks I wanted w/it I was done, but now that Ive been trying to get the fortune pickaxe it just gives me st instead,when I wanted st it just kept giving me efficiency 1,2 or whatever. I use it mainly for glass blocks now.
edit; @brorion, the snow layer is not obtainable at all as far as I know, so st will not work,
if you want a snow layer, you'll have to make a golem and let it run around.
Stupid Silk touch isn't rare enough by far. Any tool I paid more than 5 Levels to enchant is considered to be worth rage-quitting for at least 5 minutes, if it gets silk touch ( :laugh.gif: ). Some days if I get it on a Lvl45 enchantment.
If i think about all the building-freedom which was taken with the silk touch nerf ( No Ice for the Nether, no collectable spawners) it nearly completely lost it's funfactor in my opinion. It even became a nuisance now, since it can replace other usefull enchantments.
( Please don't start about why there should be no water in the Nether .... )
