The Keris is a dagger obtained after defeating the Giant Scarab at the end of the Contact! quest. Players will need 50 Attack to wield this item. If lost, another can be bought from Osman for 20,000 coins.

The Keris was created by worshippers of Elidinis in order to smite the followers of Scabaras. Like the dragon dagger it is held in a reverse grip. It has a special bonus against scarab creatures (Scarab mage and Locust riders) and kalphites (see Kalphite Lair); on rare occasions it may score a "vicious blow" against an opponent, tripling the damage the player would have done. When this happens the player will receive a message in the chat box that reads: "You slip your dagger through a chink in the creature's chitin, landing a vicious blow." The Keris can also be tipped with poison.

This dagger is one of the strongest weapons in RuneScape when used against the above listed creatures, hitting up to 132 damage (with 99 strength, a black mask with a slayer assignment of Kalphites and the highest strength bonus possible in the game, an extreme set, and the turmoil curse). It is because of this that the Keris is often considered one of the best daggers in RuneScape, along with the dragon dagger super poisoned.

Note- When you lose the dagger upon death, you will NOT be able to recover it besides speaking with Osman for 20,000 coins. When poisoned with Weapon poison , the destroy message and the examine message changes.

Trivia

  • The Keris and the Dragon daggers are the only daggers wielded in the reverse grip.
  • The Keris is based on the Indian/Indonesian dagger called a Kris or Keris.
  • Katrine in Varrock seems to be wielding this blade, but she wields it forward instead of in reverse grip.
