It was named after the dragon that was worshiped by a particular sect of the dragon cult. According to Tolfdir, this sect was quite fond of ritual sacrifices, to the extent that the High Priest would spend a great deal of time sharpening the dagger so it was always ready for its next victim.
Tolfdir will ask for Dragon Heartscales to be brought to him. Kahvozein's Fang is the only weapon that can get them. The dagger can be kept and used to get more dragon heartscales after completing the quest.
The dagger cannot be stored or dropped until completion of the quest; it can, however, be removed from the inventory if placed in a weapon rack or display case in a house.
Kahvozein's Fang must be wielded in the right hand in order to collect heartscales. When they are collected, a message will appear noting that heartscales have been added to the inventory, where they can be found in the miscellaneous category.
- Forelhost Refectory after defeating Rahgot, the Dragon Priest.
- High Gate Ruins after defeating Vokun in the A Scroll For Anska quest. If the throne room is exited after Vokun is dead, the gates to the back of the room will close and cannot be opened again.
- It may still be possible to enter the back of the throne room, if that is desired, using the back entrance to Vokun's Throne room and a follower. Climb on top of the ruins on the right side in the second room of High Gate Ruins, (right side on the map of High Gate Ruins where the door to Vokun's Throne Room is on the left side). Climb as high as possible, to be about the same height as the platform on the opposite side. Then use Whirlwind Sprint to get on to the platform. Wait by the gate and the follower should come to the other side of the gate. Then ask them to pull the chain with "Talk to ..." and "I need you to do something."
- If the follower does not show up on the other side, it's still possible to get in. Get the follower up the platform by waiting and have them stand by the door. The Unrelenting Force shout can blow them through the door. After that, tell the follower to open the gate.
