Spade detail.png

A spade is a multi-functional tool used for a variety of activities. One of its major uses is in the Farming skill, though it also comes in handy for many quests and Treasure Trails. Spades are also used to gain entrance to Barrows crypts and the Falador Mole Lair.

They are sold in farming shops and many general stores, and an infinite supply can be added to the player-owned house by making a tool store 2. They can also be obtained from a rogue kit.
