Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Steel is an throwing weapon brand that can found on tomahawks and javelins. Ammo with this brand deals 30% more damage.

Although it lacks any special abilities, steel ammo is a good choice for general use. However, it is less effective than silver when attacking vulnerable enemies. It is a rare find outside of god gifts and certain high-level monsters.

Note that while steel is a material in real life, in Crawl, it and silver are implemented as brands, so you can't have a poisoned steel javelin or a silver exploding tomahawk.
