Log-splitting scrimshaw detail.png

The log-splitting scrimshaw is an item that can be made with the Fletching skill at level 85 once all 4 scroll pieces of Log Splitting have been obtained in the Player-owned port minigame.

The scrimshaw can be activated on and off for a total of 3 hours after which it degrades to dust.

The scrimshaw requires level 70 Woodcutting to use. When active it gives a 15% chance of destroying a log as it is cut, granting additional Woodcutting experience equivalent to a proportion of the experience gained when Woodcutting a log normally along with the chat message: "Your log-splitting scrimshaw destroys the log and converts it into additional Woodcutting xp".

Depending on your Woodcutting level, you could expect up to 10K XP/hr increase if cutting Arctic Pines and 20K XP/hr increase if cutting Acadia trees.

The inferno adze also has a chance to destroy a log but grants full woodcutting and firemaking experience instead. Crystallise spell does not work with the scrimshaw. Logs destroyed do not count towards a daily challenge.
