Steel bar detail

A Steel bar is an item used for creating steel weaponry and armour. It can be smelted using the Smithing skill at level 30 Smithing by using 1 iron ore and 2 coal on a furnace, providing 17.5 experience points. Alternatively, it can be smithed using Superheat Item with 43 Magic. Both methods will require the same ingredients for the bar. Steel bars can be used with an anvil to make steel armour and weaponry, granting 37.5 Smithing experience per bar, or used with a furnace and cannonball mould to make cannonballs, granting 25.6 experience per bar, which is profitable experience popular among low and mid-level smiths.

Currently, smelting a steel bar yields a profit/loss of 36.

Steel bars can be received as monster drops from some creatures such as moss giants, fire giants and as a guaranteed drop of 5 from steel dragons.
