This article is about nails used in the Construction and Fletching skills. For the NPC called Nails, see Nails Newton.

Nails can be made of any free-to-play metal that can be smithed. Only steel nails are free-to-play, as they are used in the Dragon Slayer quest. Bronze, iron and black through to rune can only be used by members.

To make nails, you need to use a bar of the same metal with an anvil, with a hammer in your inventory. Each bar yields 15 nails. Black nails cannot be smithed; they must be acquired by an alternative method such as they are a possible piece of loot from Zogre tombs, a drop from zombie hands and a possible reward from an easy clue scroll.

Nails are used in the Construction skill. Players should bring more nails than needed, as nails will bend occasionally. Lower-levelled nails are more likely to bend. When carrying multiple types of nails, the highest levelled nails are used first.

Nails can also be used in Fletching to make brutal arrows.
