The stockings are hung and the forges are aglow in a special Christmas competition where four smiths must work their way to the judges nice list by salvaging steel from Santa's sleigh to forge signature blades. After two festive rounds, only two smiths merrily return home to recreate the iconic sword carried by General George Washington during the American Revolution. Which smith will produce a weapon worthy of Santa's seal of approval and the greatest gift of all - the title of Forged in Fire Champion and $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.
