Poison karambwan, formerly known as poorly/partially-cooked Karambwan, is a fish that is obtained when a Raw karambwan is cooked poorly. Cooking requires a Cooking level of 1 and grants 80 Cooking experience. This is a fast but expensive method for low levelled chefs to train cooking.
Eating poison karambwan will damage the player for 50 poison damage, however it only poisons once and not constantly, unlike most other poison. However, this trait can be advantageous: if a player uses a poison karambwan with a pestle and mortar, they create karambwan paste which can be used to poison spears and hastae (Poison on the weapon can be removed by using Karamjan rum on a piece of silk to make a cleaning cloth. Then the cleaning cloth can be used on the weapon to remove the poison). A karambwan can also be thoroughly cooked by a player turning it into a cooked karambwan, after completing the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest and talking to Tiadeche in his hut to learn how to cook it thoroughly. Poison Karambwan can be cooked both during and after the quest.
No store sells poison Karambwan, but Tiadeche sells it raw.
A common scam was to offer low-hp players a partially cooked karambwan in the hope that they will get poisoned and die, dropping their items for the scammer to pick up. This scam was especially popular before the 8 July 2007 update, when it was possible to expel low-lp players from a POH and their LP would stay low. However, partially cooked karambwans have been renamed "poison karambwans" to better warn players not to eat it. If eaten a message appears that says " You eat the karambwan, it tastes..painful" Also a stomach growling noise is heard.
It is no longer possible to commit suicide by eating poison karambwans; a player eating poison karambwans will stay at a minimum of ten lifepoints.
