Smithing iron knives is profitable since one iron bar at 215 coins produces five iron knives worth 225 coins, thus totaling 10 coins profit. Players can produce between 900 and 1,000 iron knives in an hour. That means the profit margin falls between 9,000 and 10,000 hourly.
The anvil just outside of Varrock West Bank is the closest to a bank in all of Old School RuneScape, so for maximum output, this should be used.
