The oxidised dagger is a quest item used in the Dealing with Scabaras quest. It can be made by using a bucket of Ugthanki dung on a bronze dagger while standing in the Kharidian Desert. The oxidised dagger cannot be wielded by players. After it has been oxidised it loses its bronze colour and instead looks similar to steel dagger.
It cannot be made again after the quest with attempting to do so resulting a chat box message stating "There's no point in distressing any more items. Simon has had his delivery of bronze artefacts.".
