Rusty sword detail

Rusty swords are broken swords that need repair. They may be taken to Tindel Marchant at the harbour of Port Khazard in the Antiques Shop Stall to be polished and made into usable swords for 100 coins; or repaired on a whetstone or on a armour stand in a player-owned house. However, using a whetstone holds the risk of the sword breaking. When fixed, you will receive a random sword or longsword, from bronze to mithril not including mithril short swords, with iron being the most common. This can be beneficial for lower level players who are low on cash. Successfully repairing a rusty sword gives 25 Smithing experience.

Giving Tindel Marchant a rusty sword is also a task in the easy set of the Ardougne Diary.

Dropping monstersEdit

Crazy archaeologist 204 1 2; Common
Kraken 291 1 3; Uncommon

Ways to obtainEdit


  • The type of sword produced from the whetstone increases with your Crafting level: 1-10 bronze, 11-20 iron, etc. Note that this only raises the percent of you getting the sword you want. For example, if you are Level 1 Crafting you still can obtain a rune sword but your chances are slim.
