Unenchanted glass war axes will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 27, and enchanted glass war axes can be found at level 28. These locations include:
- Sold by blacksmiths and general goods merchants.
- Wielded by various characters and enemies.
- Found as random loot in chests or as a world item throughout Skyrim.
- Northwatch Keep after level 27 – on a weapon rack in the room where Thorald Gray-Mane is kept captive in the quest "Missing in Action".
It can be upgraded with a refined malachite ingot at a grindstone. The Glass Smithing perk doubles its improvement.
- The Glass War Axe's head is identical to the head of the Glass arrow.
- When holstered, the right blade clips with the Dragonborn's arm.
