A rusty scimitar is a scimitar that has turned rusty. Rusty scimitars are dropped by Zombie pirates, Sorebones, or Zombie swabs. It can be taken to Tindel Marchant, along with 100 coins, be cleaned and turned into a scimitar up to Mithril.

  • The rusty scimitar along with the rusty sword was collected by people who wanted to try their luck, but because the rusty sword could be turned into a rune sword, the rusty sword was a better option for money rather than the rusty scimitar.
  • This item may be fixed on a POH whetstone. When doing this, you can fail and break the rusty scimitar.
  • The type of sword produced from the whetstone depends on your Crafting level: 1-10 bronze, 11-20 iron, etc. Note this only raises the percent of you getting the sword you want, if you are level 1 Crafting you still can obtain a Mithril scimitar but your chances are slim to none.
