"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.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

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.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

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.
