Four smiths must forge handles in round one using metal never before seen in this competition - titanium. The smiths must learn to navigate this new metal just to make it to round two. Ultimately, two competitors are able to produce weapons worthy of moving on to their home forges for another complex build: the Horseman's Tabar and Hidden Dagger. Which smith will chop down the competition, earning $10,000 and the title of 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.
