The Forsworn Axe is a war axe in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


It is a crude, but deadly weapon consisting of a wooden handle with a sharpened stone blade bound to it with sticks and sinew. In damage, it can be compared to a Dwarven war axe.


  • Found in various Forsworn camps, and in the wild country side of The Reach
  • One or two axes can be found on Forsworn since they often dual-wield.


The Forsworn axe cannot be crafted, but it can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • A unique Forsworn Axe called Briarheart Geis bears an enchantment that deals 5 points of extra damage to Nords, however, it can only be obtained through console commands.
  • Due to the axe's make, the sharp sticks used to steady the stone blade would actually prevent the blade from reaching the target; they would be stabbed by the sticks instead.
