I read on the wiki that a diamond shovel does as much damage as a wooden sword.
This lead me to wonder how much damage each tool does.
What I'd like to know is the specific values that each tool at each tier does (wooden, stone etc.) including swords.
Half a heart is equal to one damage, so a whole heart is two damage.
The reason I want to know is in case I get caught in a fight without a sword, I'll know which of my tools is going to offer me the best chance of surviving.
