Notched Pickaxe

Enchanting description: Raises the wielder's Smithing abilities, and does <mag> shock damage to enemies on hit.


Only one item uses this effect. You can learn how to enchant custom items with Smithing Expertise if you find it and disenchant it:


  • The enhancement is always +5 smithing and with a variable on damage based on enchanting skill.
  • The effect's editor ID is dunVolunruudPickaxeAbEquip, suggesting the Notched Pickaxe was originally obtainable in Volunruud instead of the top of the Throat of the World.


  • The Smithing Expertise enchantment restores damage to your Smithing skill rather than enhancing it.
    • PC Only The Unofficial Skyrim Patch, version 2.0.0, addresses this issue. However, version 1.3.3 prevents the pickaxe from being disenchanted, meaning the enchantment only exists on the now-unique pickaxe.
