Crafting and repairing metal weapons is performed with a smiths hammer on an anvil with smelted ingots and, occasionally poles and leather.
Ingots can be smelted from ore by a miner / metallurgist who are also required to dig the ore out of a mountain.
Types of Ingots
There are six types of metal ingots that can all be smelted by a miner / metallurgist and smithed into weapons:
How to make tinted Ingots
Venomous and blackrock ingots are made by alchemically treating the raw ore with various ingredients before it gets smelted into ingots. More on treating and alchemy here.
Poles are made by woodcrafters from logs. They are used in the manufacture of a few weapons that have long wooden shafts, such as spears and halberds.
Leather is used for a handful of the unarmed class weapons. Sheets of leather can be purchased from the Tailor.
Use (u) a smiths hammer on an anvil to craft items from available ingots in your inventory. There is a skill premium required to craft tinted items - the Advanced Crafting page has more information.
Weaponsmithing, like most crafting skills, can be repeated with F11.
Weaponsmithing can be used to make metal weapons like swords, axes and maces from ingots as well as combined metal and wood items like halberds and spears from ingots and poles and combined metal and leather items like the 'unarmed' neko do.
Weaponsmiths may also hammer certain ingots into sheets of metal for tinkers to work with.
