Nails are primarily used in the Construction skill. They can be made of any free-to-play metal that can be smithed, although only bronze, iron, and steel nails are available to free players.

Nails can be made from a bar of the same metal at an anvil. Each bar yields 75 nails. Black nails cannot be smithed, and can only be acquired from Ogre coffins, zombie hands, skeletal hands and as a possible reward from an easy clue scroll.

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.
