Beat the Unbeaten: Scrap Steel Challenge Summary

Competitor turned Judge Ben Abbott remains undefeated in the forge, but soon that could all change. In this challenge, three smiths face off in a single 5-hour round where they make a signature blade out of scrap steel from past Forged in Fire competitions. These blades will be put through a rigorous round of testing, with only one smith earning the opportunity to take on Ben. After an intense 8-hour forging challenge and a brutal round of blind testing, the judges will decide if this smith has what it takes to beat the unbeaten and win $10,000.
