Smalland: Craft Iron Shard at Furnace

Note that there are Scrap Metal piles scattered all throughout this area. Head up there, preferably on a mount, and do some scavenging with your Flint Pickaxe. Discovering Iron Shards from the Scrap Metal piles will unlock a new item for you — the Spike Pickaxe.

The Spike Pickaxe requires 5 Fiber, 5 Resin, 5 Iron Shards, and 5 Refined Wood to craft at the Workbench. Iron is also important to gather once you unlock the Furnace after building a Windmill.
