The Blast Furnace is located in East Keldagrim.

Although level 30 Smithing is required to smith steel bars, level 60 is strongly recommended so that the Blast Furnace can be used for free. It provides a great opportunity for players to reap great profits by producing a large volume of steel bars (worth 519 each), which are coveted by low-to-mid level smiths. Depending on each player's level of activity and team efficiency, players can produce between 1,200 and 1,500 steel bars in an hour. That means the profit margin falls between 210,000 and 262,500 hourly.

After purchasing the raw materials, players should place their coal on the conveyor belt first, and pedal the bike to get the coal into the furnace, which can hold 254 pieces of coal max. It is recommended to work in increments of 25, so it would be better to deposit 225 coal instead. Afterwards, players can deposit 25 iron ore, operate the machinery (including adding coke to the stove with a spade until it's red-hot and then pumping), and repair any broken pieces of equipment with a hammer. (Note: A spade, hammer, and bucket of water spawn in the area.) Once the bars are finished, players can dowse them with a bucket of water, and collect. Iron ore can keep being added until coal runs out in which the player will have to go on a coal run (i.e. refill the furnace), or players can just add 25 coal and 25 iron each run since the ratio of coal to iron is 1:1 at Blast Furnace.
