Almost all of the Tools (besides the first few like the Spyglass I, Crowbar I, and Hunting Spear I) can be crafted at any Carpenter around the map. However, you must meet the Infamy requirement and have the materials to craft it. Here's a look at all of them:

These are all the tools in Skull and Bones. All of them require building a certain amount of Infamy before you can unlock the crafting recipe, after that, you'll need to gather all the ingredients.

How to gain Infamy in Skull and Bones

Infamy is how you level up in Skull and Bones, and going through the ranks is essential to unlocking new crafting recipes and items. These are all the ranks in order:

  • Outcast
  • Scoundrel
  • Rover
  • Freebooter
  • Buccaneer
  • Brigand
  • Marauder
  • Corsair
  • Cutthroat
  • Kingpin

To gain Infamy, you can complete several different activities: fighting, quests, and exploration. Most quests will reward you with Infamy for completing them, and you can pick up some naturally just by traveling around to each quest location. However, I found the best way to earn some fast is just by sailing around and shooting any shark, ship, or enemy I can see.
