The Wooden Sword is a One-Handed sword added in The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire. It is a toy weapon meant to be given as a gift to adopted children, although it can be used in normal combat. It has the second lowest base damage of any weapon, after the Fork. Its effectiveness can be improved through Smithing and enchanting.


When given to an adopted child, as with any other gift, the Gift of Charity ability is granted.



The Wooden Sword cannot be crafted, but it can be upgraded with one piece of firewood at a grindstone. It does not benefit from any Smithing perks and therefore cannot improved to "Legendary" quality without the use of enchantments or Smithing potions.
