The damage enchantment to your weapons applies to every blow, so if you got three blows with a whip, going from (+0, +3) to (+0, +1) would reduce your damage by 6, not 1 (+3 * 3=9, +1 * 3 = 3). Disenchantment is bad news.
Of course, if you boosted your stats then you might be getting another blow with your war hammer which would also bring its damage up.
