Tools are a special type of collectible in Hollow Knight: Silksong giving Hornet both offensive and defensive abilities.


Tools are equipped using Crests. Each Crest allows for unique combinations of different types of Tools and each also alters the look of Hornet's health bar.

List of Tools

Four categories of Tools have been revealed so far. The red category Tools are presumably limited use consumables. These Tools can be refilled after sitting on a Bench and doing so costs Shell Shards. The effects of the yellow and blue categories are unknown. A possible fourth white category was shown in the interview from Edge Magazine's February 2021 edition which appears to be related to Silk abilities.
