The bladesmiths are forced to harvest steel from motorcycles to forge blades in their signature style, and things don't go according to plan. After an intense race to the finish, the final two competitors have only five days to recreate a giant Indian two-handed sword. Which competitor has the drive to become the next Forged In Fire Champion, and who will be left in the dust?
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.
