Ancient Nordic Pickaxe is a One-Handed weapon found in Solstheim. It is the only kind of pickaxe that is capable of mining Stalhrim. By the Fourth Era, (in lore, not in-game), there are very few of the Ancient Nordic Pickaxes left, as Stalhrim is very rare and the knowledge of forging Stalhrim Armor has been forgotten by many people and has been lost to time.  While it can be enchanted, it cannot be improved with smithing.
- Baldor Iron-Shaper of Skaal Village sometimes sells one.
- West of Tel Mithryn, near a chest or lootable from a corpse.
- Hoarfrost - A unique variant held by Ralis Sedarys. It can be obtained via Pickpocketing, or completing the quest "Unearthed" upon which Ralis can be recruited as a Follower, if spared, and the Pickaxe can be taken from his inventory.
Glover Mallory, the blacksmith in Raven Rock, will mention that his pickaxe was "borrowed" by Crescius Caerellius. He asks that it be retrieved. Once it is returned to him, he allows the Dragonborn to keep it.
