The Second Chance Tournament continues with two final duels. Up first, two runner-ups compete to prove they have what it takes to be in the number one spot. Then, two smiths whose blades failed to make it to testing will go head to head. Which smiths will advance to the final round of our Second Chance Tournament to prove they have what it takes to become the next Forged in Fire Champion and finally take home the $10,000 prize?
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.
