The Poacher's Axe is a unique Woodcutter's Axe available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It serves as a tool for chopping wood and does additional damage to animals.


The axe bears the following unique enchantment:

Unlike most unique enchantments, it can be disenchanted at an Arcane Enchanter to learn the enchantment.


This item can be found wielded by a bandit at Halted Stream Camp. The bandit is usually an Orc and tends to be found either near the grindstone above ground or within the mine. If the axe is not collected the first time, it may not respawn when the location resets, but can randomly be found at a general store, such as the Riverwood Trader.


The Poacher's Axe, unlike most tools, can be upgraded at a grindstone with a Steel Ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, though it does not benefit from any Smithing perks.
