The iron battleaxe is the second weakest battleaxe in RuneScape, being more powerful than the bronze battleaxe. Like all iron weapons, it can be wielded at level 1 Attack, and is used exclusively for melee combat.
Players can make an iron battleaxe with the smithing skill at level 25 using three iron bars, giving the player 75 Smithing experience. It is a slashing weapon, which makes it good for monsters with a slash weakness. It can only be used in combat. Players can purchase this battleaxe from Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar in Port Sarim and Bob's Brilliant Axes shop in Lumbridge.
