Old Nordic stories say it was one of the weapons that Kvenel the Tongue favored when he fought in battle. The other weapon was the legendary sword, Eduj. Okin was forged by Haman Forgefire, upon specific request by Kvenel.
It can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement. As well, after completing the Companions questline and obtaining the ability to smith Nord Hero Weapons at the Skyforge, both Eduj and Okin will be able to be upgraded to Nord Hero versions of themselves. This can only be done after completion of the Companion questline, and before completing the Silenced Tongues quest, of course.
This section contains bugs related to Okin. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- Kvenel the Tongue may help. Sometimes he will drop one of the brother weapons and there will be one on the ground and another in his inventory.
Occasionally, either Eduj or Okin will drop alone without the brother weapon. If this happens, reloading and killing
- Several instances have shown that searching Kvenel's remains more than once will likely discover the brother weapon that was not present during the first search.
- If you only find Eduj going back to Volunruud after days you will fight Kvenel again; however this time he will fight you with Okin, and after his destruction it is possible to regain the legendary axe.
- If placed on a weapon plaque, Okin may become impossible to remove.
