"Now that's a smart weapon. Light, strong, useful. Crack some skulls for me."
―Eorlund Gray-Mane, when asked for a Skyforge Steel War Axe[src]

The Skyforge Steel War Axe is a one-handed weapon found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is identical to the Steel War Axe in appearance, but has a higher damage rating which is on par with an Elven War Axe, but lighter, giving it a faster attack speed.


The only merchant who sells the Skyforge Steel War Axe is Eorlund Gray-Mane in Whiterun. The Dragonborn can also acquire it at no cost by asking for it after the Companions initiation.


The Skyforge Steel War Axe 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.
