Looking for an easy way to get the silk touch enchantment for your tools in Minecraft? Here is your guide to get it without any difficulties!
Silk touch is one of the exotic enchantments in Minecraft that cannot be obtained instantly. Players need to work their way through different enchantments before getting silk touch. For starters, if you want to get silk touch through an enchantment table, you need to have at least 18 levels of experience and an enchanting table with 9 bookshelves surrounding it. This isn’t viable for a player who has just started out in a brand new world. So let’s take a look at the properties of silk touch in Minecraft and easy ways to get it.
Silk touch is an enchantment that can be only be used on specific tools in Minecraft like, Shovel, Pickaxe, Axe and Hoe. With this enchantment, you can collect blocks that can’t be collected otherwise. Like a glass block. Also, blocks that are broken with silk touch will not drop the things they usually drop. For example, when you mine a coal ore normally, you get a couple of coal pieces. But with silk touch, instead of dropping coal, you will get the coal ore block itself.
Silk touch is also helpful when collecting a certain kind of grass block. When you mine a grass block without silk touch in Minecraft, it drops ‘Dirt’. But with a silk touch shovel, the grass block drops as it is. This also works with mycelium and snow covered grass blocks. But the most use for the silk touch enchantment in Minecraft is on a ‘Pickaxe’. A pickaxe can mine the most variety of blocks which makes it a better candidate for having this enchantment. You can directly collect ‘stone blocks’ with a silk touch pickaxe. This saves a lot of time as without a silk touch pickaxe, the player will have to collect cobblestone and then smelt all of those blocks to finally get stone.
Now that you know how useful silk touch can be in Minecraft, let’s see how you can get the silk touch enchantment. These methods will be focused on trying to get the enchantment early on in the game.

Keep checking the trades after you have refreshed its inventory by breaking the lectern. You should get the silk touch trade after trying a few times. This method can be used for any enchantment in Minecraft and not just silk touch.
