The Skyforge Steel War Axe
is a One-Handed
weapon found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
It's identical to the Steel War Axe in appearance, but has a higher damage rating which is on par with an Elven War Axe but lighter giving it a faster weapon speed.
The only merchant who sells the Skyforge Steel War Axe is Eorlund Gray-Mane in Whiterun.
The Skyforge Steel War Axe cannot be crafted, but it can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
