The elite tetsu katana is a main-hand melee weapon. It requires level 88 Attack to wield. It is the upgraded version of the tetsu katana. The off-hand counterpart of this weapon is the elite tetsu wakizashi.

To upgrade a tetsu katana to its elite version the player needs 10 plate, 1 tetsu katana, tetsu sword upgrade kit, 92 Smithing (non-boostable) and all four parts of the "tetsu swords" eastern scroll. Making one grants 30,000 Smithing and 5,000 Crafting experience. Note: The weapon must be fully repaired in order for the upgrade to work.

The katana degrades for 60,000 charges of combat before breaking. It can be repaired at a repair NPC for 2,500,000 coins, or for cheaper on an armour stand.

Repair[edit | edit source]

This item costs at most 2,500,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 625,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

NPCs[edit source]

These methods cost more as they do not consider player's Smithing level for a repair discount.

Improved methods[edit source]

These methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).
