    I think that mine would be my Dwarven War-hammer  that is enchanted with fire called Scorne-Bringer. ( I use it everywhere i go, and lost it while doing a quest because a Dragur had shouted it out of my hands...) ( it took me nearly 3 hours to find)

    My most used weapon at the moment is Miraak's sword, because it swings very fast compared with other swords. This means I can very quickly apply two poisons to an enemy, leaving him paralyzed and taking 50 damage each second, then move on to the next one.

    For my Warrior, I use a custom made Ebony Mace with Shock Damage. I love the look of the Ebony Mace and it has one of the best stagger rates in the game, making it great for a battlemage type character.

    Ancient Nord Greatsword.  I have a recurring case of restartitis, and I just love the look of it.

    Blades Sword, because katanas

    The Ebony Blade. That thing is sexy. But my favorite weapon is the Nordic Carved Sword, it's the sexiest (Bound Sword is a close second).

    The Nordic Sword looks amazing with anything, and dual-wielded with a Nordic Dagger you'll look like a desert warlord.

    If spells count then paralysis, if not then the Staff of Magnus.

    Nordic war axe or battle-axe because it looks amazing and I like axes.

    My most used weapon would be the Nord Hero Sword with a burn/absorb health enchantment. I particularly love the ancient weapon look, but it also wins a lot of points for me by having no sheath.

    If asking about favorite weapon - Dragonbone greatsword. That thing just looks badass.

    I tend to restart A LOT and still haven't beaten any of the DLCs (or even started Dragonborn). However, the one staple of almost every character I make is joining the Companions and in the process using the Skyforge steel sword. It's strong at low levels and even acceptable with high smithing at the high levels. It also looks especially cool with the aMiridianborn textures from the Nexus.

    My Dragonbone bow, which has been enchanted with chaos damage. She's my one and only.

    Mystic Bow. I love conjured weapons. Fast, reliable, never runs out of arrows.

    Skyforge Steel Sword. Not even close.

    I love my Orcish Bow that i use in my Argonian character. I call it "Chillizard" (Frost Damage)

    Glad im not the only one who thinks the nordic carved weapons look like there 'desert-y' instead of the weapons of nords. I always use them on my Redguards.

    I love all Greatswords(except ebony. I can't find the useability of ebony swords) and some bows.
    Personal favorites: Steel, Nordic, Dragonbone Greatswords
    Falmer, Forsworn, Orcish, Daedric and Dragonbone Bows

    Dawnbreaker, It may not be the strongest but to me it is the coolest sword in the game.

    Ebony weapons tend to be my most used weapon in the game. However my most favoured weapons are the glass variant. My current character: a Breton knight of particular Altmer descent uses a custom sword called Valiant-enchantment free (for the intended use of elemental fury).

    My char uses skyforged, elven, glass and ebony greatswords, swords, axes, shields and bows, depending on her opponents, the circumstances, her armour and her (ermm.. my) mood.

    I probably use the bound sword or bound bow the most. But I also love Dawnbreaker and  Dragonbone bows. I use simple hunting bows quite a bit as well.

    I've only used it for one build but the Dwarven Black Bow of Fate is probably my favorite weapon. I love the luck-based enchantment but the design seals the deal. There are cool looping Celtic designs on the back of the shaft that glow red, blue, and green, displaying the bow's absorption enchantment. The designs compliment the nearly-solid black bow beautifully. If you have the Dragonborn DLC, I highly recommend picking it up!

    Dwarvern Enhanced Crossbow enchanted to be the bane of my opponent's existance, sure it makes noise so sniping without getting caught in a long fight would be tough, but that is not my playstyle. My second favorite is Ahzidal's Ring of Arcana, because sometimes the world just needs to burn, and it is the perfect tool for any pyromaniac.
