Competitor turned judge, Ben Abbott, remains undefeated in the forge; but soon that could change. In part four of this five-episode "Beat the Unbeaten" challenge, two smiths who faced Ben in his first Forged in Fire competition are back to seek their revenge in a single 5-hour showdown. Will Ben Abbott retain his title of "The Unbeaten"?
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.
