Only the magical Imcando dwarves could create such a wondrous pickaxe.
An enchanted pickaxe created by the Imcando dwarves.
The Imcando pickaxe is a gilded dragon pickaxe that has been combined by Thurgo using components from the Lava Flow Mine. To be obtained, it must be assembled from four component parts (fragment 1, 2, 3, 4), a gilded dragon pickaxe, 1,000,000 coins, and a redberry pie after Birthright of the Dwarves quest. It requires 60 Attack to wield and 81 Mining to mine with. A gilded dragon pickaxe that is stored in the toolbelt can be used to create the Imcando pickaxe, but doing so will remove the stored pickaxe from the tool belt.
It has an increased mining rate within the Lava Flow Mine and the same speed as a dragon pickaxe elsewhere. Unlike the dragon pickaxe and gilded dragon pickaxe, the Imcando pickaxe cannot be placed in the tool belt.
When the Imcando pickaxe is used to mine ore, it has a 1/4 chance of instantly incinerating the ore, rewarding Smithing experience equivalent to smelting that ore, in addition to the mining experience for mining it. Similar to the Inferno adze, any incinerated resource is destroyed immediately.
This special effect does apply to extra ores the Varrock armour may produce, however, you still only have a 1/4 chance of incinerating the extra ore.
When first made, the Imcando pickaxe has 100 enchantment points. Every time you mine something with it successfully, it grants 20% additional mining experience at the cost of one enchantment point. The 20% bonus experience stacks with other experience boosts. Charges can be regained through mining a lava geyser in the Lava Flow Mine again. Only 1 geyser has to be mined to obtain all 100 charges again. The appearance of the pickaxe changes depending on whether or not it is enchanted with the enchanted pickaxe having a particle effect and a depleted pickaxe with no particle effect.
When an imcando pickaxe is present in a players inventory, at the end of a geyser, no other pieces of the pickaxe will be dropped; Instead all of the charges of the pickaxe will be restored to full.
When killed in the Wilderness and holding it in the inventory or wielding it, on drop it will remain as an Imcando Pickaxe and not revert to gold or any other item.
It IS possible to retrieve your dragon pickaxe back from the Imcando pickaxe. However the only current way to do so is to reset your defence level back to level 1. Doing this will reset several quests and rewards, including Birthright of the Dwarves, and will revert your Imcando pickaxe back into a dragon pickaxe.

- Initially, the design of the pickaxe was to use a blast fusion hammer, but as it required the completion of While Guthix Sleeps, it was changed to 1,000,000 coins for Thurgo to purchase.
