The rune pickaxe is the second best pickaxe available in Old School RuneScape.This is due to the release of the dragon pickaxe in the rejuvenation of wilderness update. The rune pickaxe requires 41 mining to use, and 40 attack to equip. Players should note that even if they lack 40 attack, they can still use the pickaxe for mining purposes. The rune pickaxe can be purchased from Nurmof in the Dwarven Mines for 32,000 coins. Players cannot smith the rune pickaxe, they must be obtained either from the shop or other players. The Rune pickaxe is also a semi-common reward from completing a Clue scroll (Hard).
