I just managed to get to 50 Smith level and was all excited at the prospect of upgrading my Dwarven Sword (Ex) to Orcish but even on same level of sharpening, the orcish one is much weaker than the Dwarven one... How come? Is there an hidden bonus or something?

Yea, you haven't upgraded the orcish one, while the dwarven sword is upgraded.

Yep, the Orcish weapons appear to be weaker than the Dwarven ones, even counting up to Flawless quality.

Orcish armor is, however, superior to Dwarven. It's just one of those offense-defense things.

Elven weapons are better than Dwarven and Orcish.

Ebony is very powerful though so plunder those ruins for Dwarven scrap metal and upgrade to dwarven. with Ebony bow I can 1 arrow kills for all sneak attacks

Well then, I guess Dwarves were better blacksmiths than Orcs. Oh well.

I hope this is false or doesn't apply to other weapons besides Sword..
I sold all my Dwarve making ingots to buy Orcish ingots..
