The Mithril pickaxe is a pickaxe stronger than the steel pickaxe. It requires level 30 Attack to wield, and level 21 Mining to mine with. It can be used in combat or in mining to mine rocks. Since the 7 May 2008 update, players can smith mithril pickaxes after completion of the Perils of Ice Mountain quest. Level 55 or higher Smithing, 2 mithril bars, granting 100 smithing experience, a hammer is required to do so. Players can purchase this pickaxe from Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop in the Dwarven Mine.
Some people prefer using them while Runecrafting at the Abyss, claiming they are nearly as good as a Rune Pickaxe, yet weigh less. This is a minor trade-off as players will have greater run energy due to the lower weight, and mid to high level miners will not notice the slight difference in time it takes to use the pickaxe for activities in the Abyss.
The Mithril pickaxe can be gilded by the Liquid gold nymph after receiving the full Golden mining suit, creating the Gilded mithril pickaxe. It is cosmetic and gives no more bonuses than the regular pickaxe.
As of 17 June 2013, this pickaxe can be stored on a toolbelt.
