The Firangi Sword Summary

Four bladesmiths are given just one simple parameter - impress the judges. In a single 5 hour round, they can make any blade they want from start to finish but, the smith who wows the judges the most gets to completely bypass the rigorous round of testing and go straight to the final challenge. The most impressive smith and one other who survives the testing will return home to recreate the Indian Firangi Sword.
