The Notched Pickaxe at the Throat of the World
The Notched Pickaxe is a special pickaxe found stuck into the peak of the Throat of the World. It has the unique enchantment Smithing Expertise, which boosts the Smithing skill while it is equipped, and does five points of shock damage when it is used as a weapon. Tempering the Notched Pickaxe requires an iron ingot and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.
- Strangely, the editor ID for this item is "dunVolunruudPickaxe", suggesting it originally had some connection to Volunruud.
- Despite being a unique item, the Notched Pickaxe can be disenchanted.
- This issue is addressed by version 1.3.3 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch; the Notched Pickaxe can no longer be disenchanted.
- The enchantment on the Notched Pickaxe restores damage to your Smithing skill rather than enhancing it.
