Steel pickaxe detail

The steel pickaxe is a pickaxe stronger than the iron pickaxe, and may be used in combat or in Mining to mine rocks. The pickaxe requires level 20 Attack to wield, and level 6 Mining to otherwise use. It takes a minimum of 2.4 seconds to gather ore from rocks with this pickaxe. Players can make a steel pickaxe with the Smithing skill at level 35 by using 2 steel bars on an anvil after the completion of the quest Perils of Ice Mountain. Doing so will grant the player 75 Smithing experience. A steel pickaxe can sometimes be found inside barrels.

The steel pickaxe can be gilded by the Liquid Gold Nymph after receiving the full golden mining suit, creating the gilded steel pickaxe. It is cosmetic and gives no more bonuses than the regular pickaxe.

This pickaxe can be stored on a tool belt.
