Claws are melee weapons that are members only with the exception of the exquisite claw. They can be obtained by either making them with the Smithing skill, trading with other players, or as a monster drop. Most types of claws can be created using the Smithing skill (apart from the Black claw, the White claw and the Dragon claw). Death Plateau was formerly a requirement to smith them, but after the Troll Warzone update on 31 January 2012, this is no longer needed. Lower-level claws up to steel can be bought from Martin Thwait in the Rogue's Den if you have the requirement of level 50 Thieving. Players can also get Black claws as a relatively uncommon drop from Giant Rock Crabs. Dragon claws are dropped exclusively by Tormented demons. Claws are identical to scimitars in terms of damage, but also offer a small critical hit bonus, which makes them slightly more useful than scimitars.

- When attempting to wield claws while also wielding a Crab claw in your glove slot, you will get a message saying "You need to remove your claw first." You can still wield claws while wielding a Pirate's hook or the Crabclaw hook.
- Unlike other weapons, claws used to have the option to "wear" instead of "wield". This was unique, as only equippable non-weapon items have this option.
- Claws used to exist in pairs, as a single item. They were separated into individual main-hand and off-hand claws with the Evolution of Combat update. Before this, they were among the fastest two-handed weapons in the game.
