What is a tool?
A tool is an object used to extract certain blocks, deal more damage, and do special things like change certain blocks that the player's hand alone cannot do. Normally tools aren't stackable and have a durability bar (unless the tool is unbreakable) that indicate the remaining durability when the tool is used and warns the player when the tool is about to break. Tools can be repaired using one or multiple item in anvils or combining them in crafting table or in a grindstone.
