Steel Sword.png

Skyforge Steel is made at the Skyforge in Whiterun by Eorlund Gray-Mane.

Skyforge Steel weapons are identical in appearance to regular steel weapons. The damage rating of Skyforge Steel weapons is in the tier of Elven weaponry while the weight is the same as Steel. Skyforge Steel weapons benefit from the Steel Smithing perk.

The Dragonborn receives a free Skyforge Steel weapon of their choice from Eorlund Gray-Mane after completing the quest "Proving Honor" for The Companions. Like Steel weapons, they have Nordic runes and artwork engraved upon them, particularly around the hilt.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After completing any blacksmith's introduction to Smithing, the corresponding blacksmith may tell you: "Maybe you'll remember me when you're making Skyforge Steel, huh?"
  • Skyforge Steel can be purchased from Eorlund Gray-Mane after the Dragonborn has become a member of the Companions.
  • Skyforge Steel weapons cannot be crafted by the player, as the only "unique" weapons that the Skyforge can craft are Nord Hero weapons.
  • All except the dagger can be improved by using a grindstone and a Steel Ingot.
  • Skyforge Steel warhammers and maces do not exist.  
  • All the members of the Gray-Mane family carry a Skyforge Steel weapon, instead of an ordinary Steel weapon.
  • The only way to obtain Skyforge Steel Weapons is to purchase from Eorlund, or to take them from someone who already owns a Skyforge Steel Weapon (or found in the chest under the Skyforge after joining the Companions).
  • A Skyforge Steel Greatsword will be dropped by Farkas during the "Proving Honor" quest once he transforms. Upon changing back, Farkas equips an Iron Greatsword in its place, leaving the Skyforge Steel Greatsword free to be taken.
  • If in Whiterun, Cicero will express a desire to have a Skyforge Steel weapon: "Cicero wants some Skyforge Steel! Sharp, sharp, for easy stabbing!"
