The Blade of Woe is an ebony dagger which you receive from Lucien Lachance upon the starting of the A Knife in the Dark quest. As a quest item, it will remain on your person throughout the entire Dark Brotherhood quest line. After the quest Honor Thy Mother, the Night Mother will enchant it. The enchantment is leveled. It will no longer be considered a quest item, and you can drop or store it.
If you kill Lachance in A Knife in the Dark the blade will no longer be a quest item. Instead it will have a weight of 1, a selling price of 20 septims and do 3 damage.
The Blade of Woe has a weight of 0 and a base value of 20 with a maximum damage of 7 before becoming enchanted. The following table is for the enchanted version of this weapon. There is also a glitch when you go to see the Night Mother. The glitch is if you keep talking to her, she will keep on giving you a blade of woe. you can end up with at least 2 blades by doing this.
As a last resort against ghosts or wraiths. You can use this blade to kill them, before its even enchanted.
