Four blade smiths face one of the most grueling challenges in Forged in Fire history when the electricity and power tools are taken away from them and they must forge a blade with just fire and their bare hands. Only two will survive this strenuous task to move on to the final round where they'll have just five days to create the iconic Scottish Claymore, the legendary weapon of William Wallace. They'll go blade to blade in a final round of testing, but only the bravest of hearts will be crowned the Forged in Fire champion.
World-class bladesmiths re-create historical edged weapons in a cutthroat competition.
Hosted by Wil Willis, a former Army Ranger and Air Force para-rescue specialist, the competition series pits master weaponsmiths against each other to re-create iconic weapons that will be tested and evaluated by a panel of judges.
Competitors will re-create weapons from historical periods ranging from Japanese katanas to medieval broadswords to ancient throwing blades. Each entry will be judged on its artistry as well as its functionality and accuracy. The panel will consist of Willis, knife and sword expert J. Neilson, combat specialist Doug Marcaida and weapon history buff David Baker.
