Oak shortbow detail.png

The oak shortbow is a shortbow stronger than the standard shortbow that can use arrows up to steel. It requires a Ranged level of 5 or higher to wield. Players can purchase this bow from Lowe's Archery Emporium in Varrock for 100 coins (when 3 are in stock).

Players can make an oak shortbow with a Fletching level of 20. First, a player must cut an unstrung oak shortbow from oak logs, granting 16.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung oak shortbow with a bow string, granting 16.5 experience.
