Top best answers to the question «Minecraft can you silk touch a ender chest»
- Ender chests require a pickaxe to be mined. Otherwise, they drop nothing. Unless the pickaxe is enchanted with Silk Touch, the ender chest drops only 8 obsidian with no Eye of Ender. Any pickaxe allows the ender chest to drop either itself or 8 obsidian, despite obsidian itself only being obtainable with a diamond or netherite pickaxe.

However, this should only be able to be done with a new level of the Silk Touch enchantment (Silk Touch II) which allows you to gather blocks with NBT data, such as chests. You would not be able to put chests with NBT data inside other chests, to keep this from becoming too OP. However, you can put chests with NBT data inside Ender Chests.

Just did a couple more tests. You can pick up ender chests with a silk touch pick. Both iron and diamond work, I didn't try the others. A shovel or axe will take forever and you get nothing....
When you break an ender chest with a silk touch pickaxe, only the ender chest drops as an item, not the contents. If a non-silk touch pickaxe is used, 8 obsidian will be dropped, you will need another eye of ender to make another. Each player gets their own version of the 27 slots, no items can be shared through an ender chest.
