Issue title

New Tool: Shaxe

Steps to reproduce

1) Click to dig out an uncut grass, twig plant, or berry bush. It helps to make sure you are a little distance away, although this doesn't matter.

2) Before actually arriving at the plant to dig it out, click to select any OTHER item that can be equipped (I tested it with the axe and the pickaxe).

Describe your issue

If done properly, and it works 100% of the times I tried it, you will dig out the plant/bush/grass and also cut it down to reveal cut grass, berries, or twigs. When the character is being viewed from the front or back, the animation appears to be normal digging. When viewed from the side, the animation appears to be digging with some weird scythe or something. Perhaps this is not a bug or exploit, but it definitely is not something one would expect. It doesn't however, make it faster to remove the plant from the ground and also get the regrowable item from it.

I've also noticed that you can use a similar bug to have pigs cut down trees for you without ever chopping wood. You can move away as you swing at the tree and they will punch it down. 0% off your axe.

This isn't really an exploit as the original tool will take the damage, no matter which tool you switch too. It's more of a graphical thing.

It is an exploit as it takes half the time to do the digging and picking, combined.

This isn't an exploit.

Digging up grass will yield both drops, the grass and the grass plant. Same with saplings dropping themselves and twigs, and berry bushes dropping berries and the berry bush.

Was it doing this before the Gobble update? I didn't notice it happening, and always thought that digging it up first didn't give you the other item. I just tested it, and you do receive both, which means it is only a graphical error as Excess suggested.

I'm not sure exactly if it was with the gobbler update but it IS fairly recent, it's perfectly normal to have missed it ;)
