Examine it's a bar of steel

Steel bars are a type of bar which can be made by players with at least level 30 smithing. Once can be smelted by having one piece of iron ore and two pieces of coal in the player's inventory, and then using either on a furnace, yielding 17.5 smithing experience.

Steel bars can be exchanged for steel bar certificates by talking to Miles in the Draynor Village market or Watto in Zanaris. This makes trading bulk amounts of steel bars easier and faster.

Forging steel bars Edit

Steel bars can be used for forging as part of the smithing skill. By using a steel bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, steel armour and weapons can be created. Each steel bar gives 37.5 smithing experience when consumed to make an item.
