The Blade of Sacrifice is a unique Ebony Dagger found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

AcquisitionEdit

Each of the worshipers of Boethiah at the Sacellum of Boethiah carries a Blade of Sacrifice. Hence, multiple copies can be obtained during the quest Boethiah's Calling, by the end of which the Dragonborn is tasked with killing all the worshipers. When the Dragonborn first enters the Sacellum of Boethiah, there will be two cultists fighting. One of them will die, so that a 'free' copy can be looted from his body.

Once the quest has been started, the Dragonborn is ordered to use it to sacrifice a follower at the Pillar of Sacrifice. When sacrificing a follower in this quest, the Blade automatically kills the sacrifice with a single hit. Otherwise, it acts as a normal dagger.
