In the second part of the Armed Forces Tournament, four U.S. service members redeploy to the forge floor to go head to head in one five-hour battle. Up first it's the Champions Duel where two Forged in Fire winners battle it out. Next, the Sergeants Duel, pits a sergeant from the Army against a sergeant from the Air Force. Which two smiths will come out on top and advance to the final round of the Armed Forces Tournament?
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.
