The steel axe is an axe stronger than the iron axe meaning you will obtain logs fast if used. It can be used in combat or in woodcutting to cut trees. Players can make a steel axe with the smithing skill at level 31 using 1 steel bar, giving the player 37.5 smithing experience. Players can purchase this axe from Bob's Brilliant Axes in Lumbridge.
It is free to repair the steel axe.
