It's an episode of epic proportions as Forged in Fire marks its 200th competition. And to celebrate this milestone, we're turning complete control over to the people who got us here - our fans. All the challenges, the weapons and the tests were voted on by you. Which smith will rise to this momentous occasion and leave the forge with $10,000 as the champion of our 200th competition?
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.
