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


Unenchanted glass swords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 27 and enchanted swords can be found at level 28, though rarely have a chance to appear as early as levels 16+. These locations include:

Fixed locationsEdit

  • Several can be found in Northwatch Keep after level 27.
  • One can be found just south of the Shrine to Peryite in the mouth of a cat stuck between some rocks. This is a reference to the movie 300.
  • One can be found in the lower levels of the Dawnstar Sanctuary, hanging on a weapon rack.
  • One can be found on the second floor of The Katariah, hanging on a weapon rack.

It can be upgraded with a refined malachite ingot at a grindstone. The Glass Smithing perk doubles the improvement.
