Swordfish gloves are a reward that can be purchased with 200 tokens from the Fist of Guthix minigame. They require a Fishing level of 65 to wear. When worn, the gloves grant an additional 100 Fishing experience for every swordfish caught. This effect lasts for the catching of 1,000 swordfish, after which they crumble to dust. To check how many charges players have left, right click in the equipment screen and select "inspect". Players can only buy one pair of gloves until that one had been destroyed. Trying to buy two pairs at once will result in buying only one, and receiving a notification.
Contrary to popular belief, these gloves DO NOT make you catch swordfish all the time. They have the same catch ratio depending on your Fishing level.
The experience gained from this item stacks with the double experience from using a volatile clay harpoon(or Sacred clay harpoon) from stealing creation. With both swordfish gloves, and a volatile or sacred harpoon equipped, a player receives 300xp per swordfish caught with the Morphic Tool, and 310exp with the Volatile tool. It is recommended to use Morphic as the Volatile is less predictable and does not significantly increase the exp rate economically.
Note: If you catch a tuna, they do NOT lose a charge.
