The Daedric Sword is a one-handed weapon that appears in Skyrim.


Daedric swords are somewhat visually similar to scimitars. They have a curved handle and a serrated edge, with the exception that the Daedric sword has a much darker color, and contains sharper edges around the hilt.


Unenchanted Daedric swords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 46, though they may rarely appear as low as level 40. Enchanted swords can be found at level 47, albeit very rarely. These locations include:


The Daedric sword requires a Smithing level of 90 and the Daedric Smithing perk to create. It is made at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

It can be upgraded with an ebony ingot at a grindstone and benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

Atronach ForgeEdit

A Daedric sword can also be crafted at the Atronach Forge, but it 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 create a Daedric sword:

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

  • The Conjuration spell Bound Sword summons an ethereal version of the Daedric Sword, however this version is notably weaker unless the perk 'mystic binding' has been acquired, this will increase the base damage to that of an actual daedric sword.
  • The daedric sword appears wielded by a Thalmor agent on the loading screen, as shown on the right.

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  •  PC   360   PS3  When a fire spell is equipped before equipping the Daedric Sword, there is a small chance that both will be used, (in the left hand), at the same time. The spell will not take charge time or use any magicka. This only works with Daedric Swords that are enchanted with fire damage.
  •  360   While using a Daedric sword, the sword may glitch in and out of view while being held. This tends to happen when one has recently been to the College of Winterhold, but may happen in other places. There is a chance that 2 Daedric swords may appear while in a blacksmith.
