For the first time, eight former competitors will head back into the arena for an epic tournament. However, before making it to the main event they will have to go head to head against another smith. Up first, two smiths who suffered catastrophic failures face off. Then, two smiths who failed to turn in weapons in time get another shot to beat the clock. Which smiths will seize the moment and advance to the final round of our Second Chance Tournament for the ultimate 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.
