"Just like Ysgramor himself."
―Eorlund Gray-Mane, when asked for a Skyforge Steel Battleaxe[src]

The Skyforge Steel Battleaxe is a two-handed weapon found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is identical to the Steel Battleaxe in appearance, but has a higher damage rating which is on par with an Elven Battleaxe.


The only merchant who sells the Skyforge Steel Battleaxe is Eorlund Gray-Mane, who resides in Whiterun. One can also be obtained for free upon completion of The Companions quest "Proving Honor," by choosing the Battleaxe from the list of Skyforge Steel weapons.


The Skyforge Steel Battleaxe cannot be crafted, but it can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a grindstone, and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • Eorlund mentions that the Dragonborn is similar to Ysgramor if the battleaxe is chosen as a reward.
