The sacred clay hatchet cuts as if it was a rune hatchet as seen in a glitch when you use the pick axe form of it on a rock. In the new update regular hatchets cut trees faster, but the Sacred Clay Hatchet cuts in the older style way. Anything other than a regular woodcutting tree that requires a hatchet (Ent, Woodcutting stump, etc.) does not accept the Sacred clay Hatchet. A new update now allows players to use the Sacred Clay Hatchet to make Canoes. This hatchet cannot be used in F2P worlds.
Many players tend to prefer the Dragon hatchet over the sacred clay hatchet because the dragon hatchet doesn't need to be recharged constantly and provides a faster chop. The need to constantly upgrade this hatchet especially when chopping higher trees such as yew trees is one of the main reasons it is not more widely used, although it is commonly used to cut the Evil Tree because of its double experience. It has been calculated that if you average 50-60k in a game of Stealing Creation, then if you account for the time spent for transportation and for waiting on additional games to start (on a crowded world), then at Level 74 Woodcutting with the entire Lumberjack set, you will end up with a net ~952.245 experience per minute using the Sacred Clay Hatchet on Choking Ivy, whereas with the Dragon Hatchet you will get a consistent ~1153.5 experience per minute at the same level while cutting ivy with full Lumberjack. If you don't account for the time spent obtaining the Sacred Clay Hatchet, you will be getting ~1869.222 experience per minute at this level with full Lumberjack using this item on Choking Ivy.
