  • Erik Hawkins

    So you want to apply to work at my daedric armour forge huh? What past experiences do you have in smithing, sir.I did nothing but craft iron daggers all day yesterdayYou're in.

  • dave morris

    Guys if you are in 2016 craft golden ring or necklaces to get it up faster

  • Julian H

    This was patched. The bar does not go up that fast anymore and in addition vendors do not have that much ore anymore.How I skill smithing:Get the spell transmutation (transforms iron ore into silver ore and silver ore into gold ore)Get iron ore (vendor or mining)Transform it into goldCraft golden necklaces

  • Crimson Blue

    I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I rook roughly 743 daggers to the knee.

  • Parsa Irani

    i have 20000 gold from the dark brotherhood

  • Squidink


  • samlovesu

    Dear Skyrim Newcomers,This technique doesn't work anymore. It was patched a while ago. Your best bet to increase you smithing fast is either making arrows or jewelry.

  • Jacob Ross

    How did his Smithing level bar go up so fast?

  • Clueless Ben

    I think they reduced the leveling in skyrim special edition

  • Wally Mack

    AMAZING NEW METHOD:The iron daggers are patched so i have made my own way of getting smithing to 100.You will need: Dwarven metal ingots (made from dwemer metals found in ruins) and iron ingots (mined in common places or bought)1st Get your smithing to 30 and get the dwarven smithing perk.2nd Make Dwarven bows3rd Sell them for gold that u can buy more gold with.4th Repeat.

  • Jaffa Creeper

    who heard the people in the back ground

  • Seth Hamel

    I'm going to tell you the best way to get to 100. Delete your title update from you memory unit and move your dlcs to a USB if you have any and remove the USB, start a new game and run through the tutorial. Make sure you get the worrier stone. Go get money from the hidden chests around skyrim and the iron dagger method will work, thanks and like so more people can see, thanks

  • M1ST3R x MAYH3M

    6/17/15. Took me about 6 hours in real life to grind out leveling up by making any sort smithwork and that was with 100,000 septims mind you. Good Luck IMO the dragon armor makes it all worth it.

  • Kira Ritter

    Hey I was wondering why did the blacksmith that you bought the iron ingot from have like over 120 stocked? When I buy he only has like 25 or so. It would be nice if he had over 120 stocked for me, I have the money for it...

  • Cooper Marti

    I didnt lvl up NEARLY as fast as him. He must have on some some an amuelet and ring and well sleeping bonus (which i cant get because i have werewolf blood)

  • Jon Pierre

    Make gold rings because they patched this a while back

  • jason bourne

    Was this ever patched?

  • John Doe

    They must have patched it, I have to have make like 800 + iron daggers to get to 100 ( I was using warrior stone.)

  • Markus Kreher

    This WAS great... Then the update happened... 

  • Cyclonus

    Poor me somehow these two people are dead.

  • Tyler Miller

    Much better to perk it up to dwarven and switch to making dwarven helmets after a while. You actually MAKE money, instead of loosing it, so you can craft both iron daggers (for speed) and dwarven gear (for efficiency).

  • Nathaniel Larkin

    The Thing that pisses me off the most about this video isn't that the this was patched but rather the fact that in my game, War Maidens never carry that many iron ingots...😒

  • J⃟O⃟N⃟A⃟T⃟H⃟A⃟N⃟ S⃟C⃟H⃟U⃟L⃟T⃟Z⃟

    They fixed this ;(I made like 30 and leveled up like 2 times

  • Golden Gun

    Seriously the dagger trick don't work no more

  • allshallperish1100

    Played almost 3 hundred hours just got it to 100

  • smackedinthejaw

    Past level 50'ish it takes about 20 iron daggers to rise a level, so come level 90+ I can imagine 100 ingots and 100 leather strips wouldn't even get you 3 levels.

  • _DEDSEC_TOR_ _

    Hey just a quick word this was patched just saying because people down below are saying it don't work it does if you have LOTS of ingots and leather you can use for the daggers and any left over leather use it in the leather armor category AND make sure you get the potions and a necklace or enchanted piece of armor for smithing you will level up plenty quick!

  • Bum Boy Gaming

    Wtf it takes me 10 daggers to lvl once


    I have 1000 gold..MeanwhileMe having 176k gold and lvl 73 smithing..

  • Elijah Porter

    My way to get gold + smithing offly fast as long as you have dwarven smithing: Find a dwarven ruin, loot itmas much as possible for items that make ingots, smelt, get leather strips, then spam dwarven bows. Sell them, buy as many dwarvwn meatal ingots possible, rinse and repeat. PLEASE DO NOT CRITISIZE, JUST MY WAY

  • Portal Pup

    On xbox I recommend banned iron armor and gold rings

  • marie sykes

    on xbox smith dwarvon bows its faster then iorn daggers

  • Steezy Glo Boy

    I found a better way instead of everything you've seen in videos!The best way to level up smithing is with leather, leather strips, craft as many chest plates as you can of leather this is leveling me up fast even from level 75 this has helped me, unfortunately, I found this quite late in my progress but it can be better for you if your looking to level your smithing for daedric, dragonscale, etc. Hope I helped! And this is for the current version.

  • Rick

    Do the dark brother hood quest line.You get a lot of gold from that :P

  • Ashley W

    Daggers has been patched, make gold rings (easier with Transmute spell), or Dwarven bows

  • Vagiz Abrarov

    Easiest way: Get under the map in whiterun. Make your way to the skyforge. wait for eorland Graymane to be on the grindstone. jump and talk to him by spamming his x on his foot. then train your smithing. once out of gold or levelled 5 times, go to the chest in front of you and take your gold back and or all of eorlands items. Rinse and repeat. Also a good way to level up! hope this helped.

  • Lord snuffaluffagus

    i went in with 35,000 and came out with 8 gold is that a problem

  • Grim fang the Hellhound

    iron nails is cheaper, only cost 1 iron ingot for 10 nails


    I had like 4K and a lil more

  • _DEDSEC_TOR_ _

    Oh yeah and get the warriors stone thanks!

  • Jonto Meyer

    Making iron daggers does not level up your character that much

  • Nick Varrasse

    Smithing doesn't level like this anymore.

  • Riley Jones

    Does anyone know an easy way to do this now?

  • Luke Kv

    holy crap thanks man i subscribed


    Okay guys. Your probably gonna hate me for this but its patched. There is nothing we can do about it if you look at the date on when this video was made. It was made on November 16 2011 which is not that long after the games release so I suggest you try a different method. And its most likely that this doesn't work on legendary edition either.

  • GreenBanana

    First person view? Let me guess, playing as one of the dozen human races.Oh dear, and playing on a console, too. Oh dear.2:33 Because iron daggers have more mass than an entire ingot.Um. Yeah. This has nothing to do with getting 100 Smithing in five minutes.

  • MadLungz x

    Crafting Jewelry is faster... use transmute

  • Sean Vu

    I play of Xbox 360 and it works -_-

  • Brian Alvarenga

    doesn't level up as fast on the ps4 remastered version

  • J T

    So Not Helpful. The Idiot Literally Sold Her 150 Iron Ingots And Claimed She Started With it...

  • Ayem Osum

    You had 1004 gold yet you bought 1242 worth of Iron Ingots how is this possible

  • Rflexion

    He leveled so many levels, he was lvl 17, waiting to level to 18. If he levels to 18, will he be able to level to 19 right away because he leveled so many times in lvl 17? I dont know and i need help about this

  • Taylor Robinson

    hello,i am a new skyrim player,ABSOLUTELY love the game i have been doing the dark brotherhood kills i have like 100,000 gold how much it cost to do the iron dagger method to 100? i have 57 smithing at the moment.

  • Drago Gamez11

    If your reading this in 2016 just make necklaces or rings and it should be fund

  • Dr Dalek 2.0

    On PS3 it gets harder and harder as you go once you get to level 45 in smithing it might just be on the PS3 though

  • Bombsquad_zach

    complete the dark brotherhood story and get I think it was 20 or 40 thousand gold

  • ItsZaos

    Mine doesn't level up that fast :( It takes like 15 daggers to level up once at 30 :/

  • Shadow claws

    when i make iron daggers it goes slowly that means i have to get the warrior stone or a smithing perk?

  • sami alwajih

    Better way:Acquire Lydia (Protip use magnets for better acquiring)Acquire warrior stoneGo to Dwarf cafésForce feed Lydia metalReturn to WhiteballsSleep for 24 hoursSmelterMake dwarves bowsCongrats you just wasted a few hours of your life!

  • Explore Games

    People are saying that daggers have been patched and this method won't work any more but it does - just takes around 1000 daggers to get all the way to 100 IIRC.  You can attack the vendor and reload to restock their inventory, and if you enchant the daggers before selling them (with petty soul gems) you'll be levelling that up too AND making money.  There's no faster way - if you use the spell to change iron to gold, you get half the amount, so it will take twice as long (and cost more).  Also you won't be able to enchant them with the Banish enchantment, which is the one you want to use because it gains your skill quicker and the enchanted items are worth more to sell.

  • Ater Nefarium

    Will it work if you just mine your own iron ore and get your own leather strips because it's quite easy for me to do such and does it specifically have to be at that certain forge?

  • michael saucier

    My smithing bar goes up noooooooooooooooooo slowIt took me 4 hours to get to 40 from 25

  • Daniel Rossell Solanes

    isn't it better to just use player.setav skillname # and set any skill you want as high as you want?

  • Viridium

    Patched on special edition on PC steam.

  • Sarah

    Love this. i found this to be the most simplest, cheapest, and fastest way. thanks for the video!

  • Kimberly Miller

    Anyone watching it 2018?

  • EE Ehrenberg

    No, no, no, no. What you do is you first get okay at pick pocketing. Really easy to level up quickly there. Then you train smithing by Eolund Gray-Mane up by the sky forge in White Run, pick pocketing him after every session so it doesn't cost a thing. Works up to about level 50. It also trains your pick pocketing. He can train you 5 pr level. After those 5 smithing levels, you smith a few knives to gain a few more levels. Then enchant the knives, if you can, to train your enchanting as well. Then sell the knives for a bunch of money. You'll probably have leveled your character by then, so return to Eolund Gray-Made for five more free smithing levels. Repeat until you're level 50 in smithing. After that, you'll have to rely on the knife smithing to continue leveling, so you want to have saved up and hoarded as much leather and iron as possible first. Get a house in Whiterun to hoard it all. Don't use it all up just getting to level 50.
