A potential reward from the Daedric quest 'A Daedra's Best Friend'. Killing Barbas during the quest will give the Rueful Axe.
If The Rueful Axe is instead returned to the shrine of Clavicus Vile and Barbas not killed, the Masque of Clavicus Vile will be gained as a reward instead.


The quest reward for completing the Daedric quest 'A Daedra's Best Friend', if you kill Barbas and keep the axe for yourself.


  • The original is normally turned in during the quest, so only the replica can be displayed.
  • If you killed Barbas and kept the axe, you only need to have had the original in your inventory for the replica recipe to be available.

If you instead chose to return the axe to the shrine, the replica recipe will unlock at the Replica Station at the completion of the quest.
