The Daedric Dagger is a one-handed weapon that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Similar to the sword, this dagger has a serrated edge. It also has the curved handle unique to Daedric weapons.


Unenchanted Daedric Daggers will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 46 and enchanted daggers can be found at level 47, albeit very rarely. These locations include:


The Daedric dagger requires a Smithing level of 90 and the Daedric Smithing perk to create. It can be forged at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

It can be improved with an Ebony Ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement of it.

Atronach ForgeEdit

A Daedric dagger can also be crafted at the Atronach Forge, however to do so requires a Sigil Stone that can only be obtained via Conjuration Master Training, which in itself requires a Conjuration skill of 90.

The Atronach Forge requires the following components to forge a Daedric Dagger:

A Sigil Stone is required to activate the forge but is not consumed.


  • Two can be seen in a loading screen dual-wielded by a Dunmer in Dark Brotherhood armor. An interesting note is that he holds the knives in reverse grip, which – in game – is possible only when performing a power attack with dual-wielded daggers.
  • The Daedric Dagger has the second highest base damage of all of the daggers, tied with Mehrunes' Razor. The first in damage being the Blade of Woe and the dragonbone dagger.
