Steel bar detail.png

A Steel bar is an item used for creating steel weaponry and armour. It can be smelted using the Smithing skill at level 30 Smithing by using 1 iron ore and 2 coal on a furnace, providing 17.5 experience points. Steel bars can be used with an anvil to make steel armour and weaponry, granting 37.5 Smithing experience per bar, unless the bar is used with a furnace and cannonball mould to make cannonballs, granting 25.6 experience per bar instead, which is profitable experience popular among low and mid-level smiths.

Currently, smelting a steel bar yields a profit of 23. Without a coal bag, the most bars one can smith at a time is 9, achieved with an inventory of 18 coal and 9 iron ore.

Steel bars can be received as monster drops from some creatures such as moss giants, fire giants and as a guaranteed drop of 5 from steel dragons.
