Silver Tools are upgraded versions of the regular Tools found in the Animal Crossing series, all of which have a silver metallic look with turquoise details. Silver Tools first appeared in City Folk, and then reappeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In City Folk, many of the tools may be purchased in the store, while the others must be earned. In New Leaf, most of the tools are sold in the Museum store.
In City Folk
Silver Slingshotslingshot . It can be purchased from Tom Nook's shop for 500 bells. The silver slingshot fires two pellets at once in a "V" pattern, making it easier to shoot down balloons.
Silver Fishing Rod
The silver fishing rod is an upgraded version of the regular fishing rod. It can be purchased from Tom Nook's shop for 500 bells. The silver fishing rod has a higher catch radius, sending the lure farther into the water and keeping fish on the hook longer.
Silver Netnet. It can be purchased from Tom Nook's shop for 500 bells. The silver net has a higher catch radius, catching bugs further away from the player than the regular net.
Silver Watering Canwatering can. It is obtained from a letter sent by the 'Posy Farm', the florists that possibly supply Tom Nook's shop with seeds after purchasing 50 flower seeds. After purchasing the 50th pack of seeds, the farm sends a letter with the silver can attached as thanks for their patronage. The silver watering can can be used to restore wilted Red Turnips to their original just-planted state.
Silver Shovelshovel. The silver shovel is obtained from Resetti in the City on a random day after 8 p.m. Rarely, the traffic cones to the right of the city will be moved aside, and the player will be able to enter Resetti's Headquarters, from where he travels to the towns of other players that have not saved their games before quitting. If the Player talks to Resetti, he will hand the Player a Silver Shovel in order to persuade them to leave. The Silver Shovel is used to potentially double the money gained from hitting a Bell Rock.
Silver Axeaxe. It can be obtained from Serena by throwing a regular axe into the town's fountain. If the player answers her questions correctly, the player may end up with a Silver, Gold, Normal or no axe at all. The player may try once per day. Like the Gold Axe, the Silver Axe will not break.
In New Leaf
The silver net can be purchased from the Museum shop for 500 bells after a minimum of 30 bugs have been donated to the Museum. Like in City Folk, the silver net has a wider catch radius than the regular net.
Silver Fishing Rod
The silver fishing rod can be purchased from the Museum shop for 500 bells after a minimum of 30 fish have been donated to the Museum. Like in City Folk, the silver fishing rod has a higher catch radius, sending the lure farther into the water and keeping fish on the hook longer than the regular fishing rod.
The silver shovel can be purchased from the Museum shop for 500 bells, after a minimum of 15 fossils have been donated to the Museum. The silver shovel now has a chance to produce gems from a Money Rock instead of Bells.
On rare occasions, the island gift shop will stock a silver axe, with a sale price of 8-9 medals . This axe has a guaranteed chance of producing rare tree stump designs when cutting down trees. The silver axe will break after 136 uses (unlike the silver axe in City Folk, which never breaks), but has higher durability than the regular axe (which breaks after 32 uses).
Silver Watering CanThe silver watering can is obtained from Leif's gardening store after purchasing 50 packs of flower seeds. The silver watering can water up to 5 flowers at one time.
The silver slingshot is carried as a present by two silver balloons, once the player has shot down at least 16 balloons. Like in City Folk, the silver slingshot shoots two pellets at once in a "V" pattern.
