Is anyone else a fan of the straight edged blades? I don't like the ebony or daedric one handed swords on skyrim. I wish the daedric one handed blade was like the greatsword. I'm not a fan of curved blades in any way, and swords without crossgaurds.
I don't like the Cutlass type swords like the Daedric or Redguard but do i like the Katana like Blades and Ebony Swords, Goldbrand in Oblivion was intresting more like a Ninjato (Ninja sword) than like Katana.
Thats what I'm saying I can't stand that type of sword. I'm not even really a fan of the Katana blades, like how did they get into this land? There are no asians to speak of. And Goldbrand was the one exception to this. Its not as curved as all the others and other aesthetic designs make it favorable to me. I freaking love Goldbrand.
Akavir is where all the Asian stuff comes from, equipment and designs brought over by the first Blades like the Ancient Akaviri Katana. The Akaviri (the human ones probably eaten by the snake guys) seem to be (very) roughly based on the Japanese although their weapons and armor is all we've really ever seen along with the design of Cloud Ruler Temple which does kinda has Pagoda like buildings behind the walls.
Goldbrand and the Northwind are my two main swords for my main Oblivion character.
I like the more slender blades. The steel and elven swords are too wide. The dwarven blade is too... blah. I love the look of the orcish sword, but it's not effective enough. The Blades sword I like. My favorite is the Nordic sword, that thing is simply cool looking. The 2-handed Nordic sword is off the charts.
I love the Blades Swords. Harkons Sword, Dragonbane, Bolars Oath Blade, the Akavairi Sword (had to steal it from Dexicon), if it scarecely looks like a katana I have it and have upgraded to the fullest legitimate extent.
@Assassin'sArt: Although I'm sure you're aware, I think the silver sword would be a very good choice. It has a crossguard and a straight edge, much like you said you wanted. I know, I know, it's weak and blah, blah, blah, but if you do want a longsword or something like it I think that the silver sword would be the best. Also, I don't know if you're into being a vampire (I'm not one much for it, really), but if you use a silver sword as one, it does 20 extra points of damage. And when fighting undead, it adds another extra 20 damage. So, if you improve it at a grindstone and enchant it, you can still have a pretty formidable sword while having the style you like. Oh, and there's no exploits/(cheating?) involved.

Contributor 178.247 thank you for that haha although I did know about it I've forgotten about it until now. I used that magnificent blade for my firat character and enchanted the crap out of it and I thought it was pretty bad ass. I think I'll bust it out again. But I kill vampires lol. Good man/woman though. You out to make an account.
Dawnbreaker. Awesome name, cool looking sword and effect, and fun when in draugr filled crypts and/or dungeons. Also, all Nordic weapons are amazingly designed and fit well in the setting of Skyrim, and great for RP purposes when playing a Nord.

I like most of the maces, though.
the maces in skyrim are great especialy the improvement on the dwarven mace
Ever since I upgraded my Dawnbreaker, I have not used any other sword (or weapon). It's funny, though: I have Serana (and Gregor who is still mortal and not undead) as my two primary followers (via the multiple follower exploit) and I, myself, am a Vampire Lord. So whenever I kill an undead enemy and the special fire-damage + turn undead effect triggers, Serana and I both catch on fire (and seemingly take damage). Luckily, I have more than enough magic resist on us both that it doesn't cause either of us any damage (although we both still grunt from the effect) and Serana does not become hostile at all due to it causing no damage to her as well. This all happens while Gregor stands there, looking at us, just peachy with no damage or effect done to him. It's funny to see two of the three of us with blue flames on us and Gregor untouched by anything.
