Black longsword detail.png

The black longsword is a longsword stronger than the steel longsword, but weaker than the mithril longsword. Like all other black weapons, it requires 10 Attack to wield, and cannot be made using the Smithing skill. Players can purchase this longsword from the Varrock Swordshop in Varrock.

The black longsword and the steel longsword have the same strength bonus. Black longswords have the same bonuses as a white longsword, other than the +1 prayer bonus the latter offers.

As with all black and white equipment, the Black longsword cannot be made from raw materials using the Smithing skill.
