Steel axe detail.png

The Steel axe is slightly stronger than the Iron axe. It can be used in combat or in Woodcutting to cut trees. It requires an Attack level of 5 to be equipped, and a Woodcutting level of 6 to be used.

The success rate for chopping a log is approximately 200% that of the Bronze axe, or 33% better than an Iron axe.

Players can make a Steel axe with the Smithing skill at level 31 using one Steel bar, giving the player 37.5 Smithing experience.
