The Blades Sword is a one-handed sword that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Wielded by members of the Blades, these katana-like weapons can be obtained upon joining that faction, although its appearance differs from its variant in Oblivion. A light and quick weapon, it has base damage equal to the scimitar, Elven sword, Nord hero sword, and honed ancient Nord sword.


Unique variantsEdit


The Blades sword 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.
