How to Get Borvir's Dagger Guide

Where to find Borvir's Dagger Location?

  • To find Borvir's Dagger (Elven dagger) early in Skyrim you must travel to Journeyman's Nook near Winterhold in the far north of Skyrim. The fastest way to reach this location early is via the carriage outside of Whiterun. The location is very small and the unique dagger can be found on Bovir's body alongside Treasure Map 2. Borvir was an apperntice mage at the College of Winterhold who met a frosty end while attempting to chill mead with magic.
