Eduj is a unique Nord Hero Sword found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Old Nordic stories say it was one of the weapons that Kvenel the Tongue favored when he fought in battle.[1] The other weapon was the legendary war axe, Okin.[1]


Eduj can be obtained in the ruins of Volunruud after defeating Kvenel the Tongue during the quest "Silenced Tongues."


It can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • Eduj is Jude backwards. Given the name and nature of the quest, and Kvenel the Tongue's name, this is a possible reference to the book of Jude in the Christian Bible, which deals with the concept of 'speaking in tongues'.

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  ,  NX  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  •  PC   360   PS3   Occasionally, either Eduj or Okin will drop alone without the brother weapon. If this happens, reloading and killing Kvenel the Tongue may help. Sometimes he will drop one of the brother weapons and there will be one on the ground and another in his inventory.
    • Several instances have shown that searching Kvenel's remains more than once will likely discover the brother weapon that was not present during the first search.

  • My Eduj is Nord hero but should be ancient Nord.

    • They are just different. It might be because they are legendary weapons and kept in pristine condition, or are enchanted against rust/decay.
    • That's how they are. If you want Ancient Nord variants, just enchant an Ancient Nord Sword and Ancient Nordd War Axe with Frost damage ...
