Four smiths must rely on their math skills to determine the amount of steel needed to make their signature blades. After a couple calculating rounds, two smiths return home to build the intricate M1905 Springfield Bayonet. Which smith's design will lock him into first place, securing the Forged in Fire title and a check for $10,000?
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.
