Rune sword detail.png

A rune sword is a medium-level sword made out of rune. It can be purchased from Scavvo's Rune Store for 20,800 coins. Like all rune weapons, it requires 40 Attack to wield.

A rune sword can be created at level 89 Smithing using 1 rune bar, giving the player 75 Smithing experience.

Rune swords are ideal for non-member Ironmen as the only way to obtain a rune scimitar in a free-to-play world is to create it from scratch, requiring 90 Smithing and 85 Mining.
