Rune knife detail

The Rune knife is a member's only ranged throwing weapon. It is the second best throwing knife in the game behind Dragon knife, and requires 50 Ranged to wield. They can be obtained by using the Smithing skill, looting a ninja impling, a drop from certain metal dragons, trading with another player, or sometimes by smashing barrels. Rune knives can be wielded with a shield or god book for protection. They are commonly used in PvP situations, but due to their price, are often replaced with dragon darts.

92 Smithing is needed to create rune knives. Each Rune bar will create 5 rune knives and grant 75 Smithing experience.
