Daedric weaponry is very rare and can only be found or bought in a handful of places. Unenchanted Daedric weapons will begin to appear throughout the world at level 46 and enchanted weapons can be found at level 47. These locations include:

They can be upgraded with an Ebony ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Daedric Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement. Daedric arrows are the only item that requires firewood to be crafted.
