Ebony Sword is a one-handed sword that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


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:


The ebony sword requires a Smithing level of 80 and the Ebony 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 also benefits from the Ebony Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
