Rusty sword detail.png

Rusted swords are broken swords that need repair. They may be taken to Tindel Marchant at the harbour of Port Khazard in the Antiques Shop Stall to be polished and made into usable swords for 100 coins; or repaired on a whetstone or on an armour stand in a player-owned house. Both the whetstone and armour stand hold the risk of causing the sword to break, destroying the rusty sword in the process. Successfully repairing a rusty sword gives 25 Smithing experience.

It can be obtained as drop loot from monsters or by pickpocketing a H.A.M. Member (requires level 15 Thieving).

Giving Tindel Marchant a rusty sword is also a task for the Easy Ardougne Diary.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The chance of the sword being broken from the whetstone decreases with the player's Smithing level.
