Four bladesmiths go nuts when they are tasked with forging a signature blade from W2 and a giant industrial-sized nut. Their blades must survive a brutal Forged in Fire first when they face not one, but two unforgiving strength tests. Only two smiths advance and head back to their home forges to recreate an iconic ancient iron weapon: the Celtic Anthropomorphic Sword.
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.
