During my gameplay i was always wondering, why can't I get a weapon that look really cool (i.e. like Mehrunes Razor) but without those stupid enchantments? In most cases custom created weapons can be much more powerfull than even deadric artifats, but still i was tight to standard look of a weapon. Skyrim is full of crazy and good-looking models, but mostly we can get those items in form of some kind "crap" items, especially compared to custom created weapons and armors.
That's why i created this mod.

This mod modify Arcane Blacksmith Perk by adding ability to create usable replicas of almost all artifact and unique items that exists in the game.
The key is, you can only craft those items while having original ones in your inventory (you know, quick look and craft, another quick look to apply some corrections :) ). You don't need to finish specific quests for them, you can craft replica until you have original in your bag (i.e. The Rueful Axe before turning in quest).
Small exception is for leveled items: no matter which version you have, replica will be always correspondent to its strongest version.

All created Replicas can be tempered, and used as a normal weapon and armors with stats of original item, but without their magical powers (i.e. dagger that looks like Mehrunes Razor - presonally i like it more that standard daedric dagger). As long as you need Arcane Duplicator Perk to craft all replicas, you still need apropriate perk to improve items (i.e. Chillrend is still a glass sword, so you need Glass Smithing to take full benefits from tempering it).

---------- UPDATE 2 ----------
I've changed this mod a bit, by addint Arcane Duplicator functionality straight to Arcane Blacksmith Perk (now it should be compatibile, with all smithing addons, which modifys this perk too i.e. by adding something new to its mechanizm).

Added clothes:
- Thalmor Robes
- Thalmor Hooded Robes
- Jester's Armor - will work with either Jester's Clothes set or Cicero's Clothes set (if you decide to kill Cicero :P )

PS. In total addidtion i've modified Shrouded Gloves and Ancient Shrouded Gloves so now they can be disenchanted :)

---------- UPDATE ----------
Added armors:

- Thieves Guild Armor - should work with normal and improved version
- Guild Master's Armor
- Shrouded Armor - should work with normal, worn and ancient version - crafted items are the same as Ancient Shrouded Armor
- Nightingale Armor - crafted item are the same as highest version of this set, should work with all leveled versions
- Linwe's Armor
