Harkon's Sword

Harkon's Sword is a one-handed sword carried by Lord Harkon. It can be acquired through either pickpocketing or by killing him when completing the Dawnguard add-on's main questline. It is similar in appearance to a Blades katana, except that its sword guard is decorated to resemble Molag Bal, and the handle is black. Its effect is unique in that its enchantment will only take effect if wielded by a vampire.


  • It can be pickpocketed from Harkon's inventory without the Misdirection perk, as he does not have it equipped.
  • HendraheimCC, Myrwatch's galleryCC contains a special holder for this item.
  • The Dwarven Black Bow of Fate is one other weapon in the game with a similar enchantment. However, it differs from Harkon's Sword by the fact that it has a chance to absorb one or more attributes (or none at all), and the wielder does not have to be a vampire in order for the enchantment to activate.
