Rock

The Rock is practically the mascot of Rust. As both a weapon and tool, every player starting with one must use it to initially collect resources and protect themselves from the environment before upgrading to superior utensils. The Rock, if broken, is very cheap to craft, costing only a few stones. It is unarguably the least efficient tool and weapon in the game. With its low gather rates and slow speed, most players will desire to immediately upgrade to at least stone tools once they have acquired enough resources.

Its fine to keep one, if you wish to harvest stone, metal or sulfur ore in the early game. When you pair it with a stone axe.
Smashing nakeds on the beach is fun for a while and gives you bones, if you want to upgrade to a bone club.
