The Woodsman's Friend is a unique iron battleaxe found in Falkreath Hold. It does slightly more damage than a normal iron battleaxe, but takes longer to swing. Because of this, it actually loses damage points overall.
Location[edit | edit source]
The axe is located just southwest of the Conjurer's Altar and north of Pinewatch, near the body of a dead woodcutter. There are two sets of felled trees, it is located near the set of trees closest to Lake Ilinalta (on the southeastern side of the lake).
- Locate Pinewatch (Falkreath Hold)
- Follow the path north, through the pass and towards the lake
- Locate the first set of felled trees (just to the right of the trail)
- Optional* Go to the Conjurer's Altar to locate the second set of felled trees (closer to the shore)
- Walk along the felled trees
- Go to the alive tree on the left (closest to the rocks)
- The axe is in the grass (slightly hidden) at the base of the tree

Bugs[edit | edit source]
This section contains bugs related to The Woodsman's Friend. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- There is a possibility that "The Woodsman's Friend" may vanish when it is approached.
- If Serana resurrects the dead woodcutter, the axe may reappear repeatedly after being picked up.
- Hearthfire is installed, the dead woodcutter may not spawn, along with his axe. This is fixed in Skyrim: Remastered . If
