The Knights Sword is a F2P Quest in OSRS that gives a massive Smithing Boost as a reward. This quest is quite short and holds next to no requirements so it’s a must-complete for every player.

In this OSRS The Knights Sword Guide, we’ll go through all the steps to complete the quest.

This guide is a part of our OSRS Optimal Quest Guide.

Why Complete The Knights Sword Quest?

The main reason players complete the Knights Sword quest is that the experience reward at the end can boost your Smithing Level from 1 to 29. Therefore, for efficiency, players oftentimes do a Knights Sword very early in the game to skip training the initial levels of Smithing.
