Rusted 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. Both the whetstone and armour stand hold the risk of causing the sword to break, destroying the rusty sword in the process. When fixed, the player will receive a random sword or longsword, from bronze to rune, with iron being the most common. Successfully repairing a rusty sword gives 25 Smithing experience.
Giving Tindel Marchant a rusty sword is also a task for the Easy Ardougne Diary.
