The Elven Sword is a one-handed weapon found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Elven sword has a broad double-edged blade that has a very light and shiny look. The crossguard is small, in the shape of wings, and has metal stripes on every side.


Unenchanted Elven swords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 19 and enchanted swords can be found at level 20. These locations include:
