/give @p minecraft:bow{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Test Name\"}"}} 

Is what I am trying to add enchantments to but cannot seem to figure out how. {Sharp 5 Knockback 100}

I tried the following:

/give @p minecraft:lead{Enchantments:[{id:"minecraft:knockback",lvl:1‌ 000},{display:{Name:‌ "{\"text\":\"Test Name\"}"}}
/give @p minecraft:bow{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Test Name\"}"}},{Enchantments:[{id:"minecraft:knockback",lvl:1000‌ }
/give @p minecraft:lead{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Test Name\"}"}{Enchantments:[{id:"minecraft:knockback",lvl:1000}}

It seems to me that you have malformed nbt. In all the commands you’ve tried, you opened an array and never closed it. What you’ve done.


What the correct way is.


Notice in the bottom example there is a close bracket at the end and the top example there isn’t. That is an example of malformed nbt. Your final command is below.

/give @p minecraft:lead{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Test Name\"}"}, Enchantments:[{id:"minecraft:knockback",lvl:1000s}]}

For later problems I suggest using mcstacker to generate commands.
