The entire weapon seems to be made out of ebony, with the blade area having the thinnest amount, and the hilt with the thickest. The right side of the blade seems to have complex designs of lines and swirls, while the left side does contain similar designs, though to a lesser extent. The hilt appears to have a large amount of ebony tied around to ensure a tight grip, with an area that contains more ebony on top, most likely for precision.
Unenchanted ebony swords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 36, and enchanted swords can be found at level 37. These locations include:
- Blacksmiths and general goods merchants.
- Wielded by various characters or enemies, particularly draugr deathlords and draugr death overlords.
- Found as random loot in chests, or as a world item throughout Skyrim.
- During the quest The Wolf Queen Awakened, a draugr deathlord can be found wielding an ebony sword as low as level 3.
- During the quest Tending the Flames, Olaf One-Eye might wield an ebony sword, even at lower levels.
- Can also be found in the Lost Valkygg as a deathlord wields a ebony bow and another wields any random ebony weapon, even at low levels.
This section contains bugs related to Ebony Sword. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- If this weapon is placed in a display case, it doesn't get placed in the middle of the case, but instead it is placed further to the right and the handle sticks out of the side of the case.
- An unenchanted Ebony Sword or other ebony weapons can be found on King Olaf at lower levels.
- Sometimes if an NPC is equipping a helmet and the Dragonborn beheads him, his head will fall from the body. But if the Dragonborn takes his helmet, his head will return to the body.
