Steel nails detail.png

Steel nails, along with other nails, are primarily used in the Construction skill to make various low-level furniture. They are made with a steel bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, requiring level 34 in smithing and receiving 15 steel nails and 37.5 Smithing experience per bar.

These nails are the only nails that non-members can create, as they are used in the Dragon Slayer quest. Members can use them to construct certain types of wooden furniture. Steel nails are tradeable, can be bought at the sawmill operator and are quite cheap. However, they break occasionally.

Fifteen steel nails are used in crafting a green d'hide shield, alongside a maple shield and two pieces of green dragon leather, requiring 62 Crafting and granting 124 experience.

In addition, they are used on flighted ogre arrows to create steel brutal arrows, requiring 33 Fletching and granting 5.1 experience per arrow.
