Iron dagger detail
Iron dagger(p) detail

The iron dagger is a dagger stronger than the bronze dagger. Players can make an iron dagger with the Smithing skill at level 15 using 1 iron bar, giving the player 25 smithing experience. Members can poison this weapon, giving them an advantage in combat. Players can purchase this dagger from the Varrock Swordshop. There is also a respawn in the house with the Goblins near the canoe dock in Lumbridge.

Players with at least level 32 Thieving can get an Iron dagger (p) by pickpocketing Rogues. Rogues are located southwest of the deep wilderness Mage Arena.

It is superior in accuracy to the bronze sword. As it is a common and inexpensive item, an iron dagger is more likely to be obtained by new players than other iron weaponry.
