|Examine||Ahrim was known to cast spells from this.|
Ahrim's book of magic is a book wielded in the off-hand slot that requires level 70 magic to be wielded.
A player is able to cast spells twice as fast with a wand as with a staff, which is two-handed.
This item can be rarely obtained by looting the chest in the Barrows minigame.
A player equipped with Ahrim's book of magic

- Ahrim's book of magic and Karil's off-hand pistol crossbow are the only pieces of Barrows equipment that are worn in the offhand (shield) slot.
- A Dual-wielding update for mage made players able to cast 2 spells at a time, with the damage output being similar to dual-wielding melee weapons. This made the wands and books have the amount of accuracy a weapon of their level has, meaning Ahrims book of magic now has 1486 rather than 374 accuracy and vice versa with the wand.
- Ahrim's book of magic was unusual in that, for a while, it was more expensive than its mainhand counterpart. This may be explained by the Wand of Treachery providing the same bonuses as Ahrim's Wand, for a smaller price, but having no off-hand counterpart itself.
