Forged in Fire features world-class bladesmiths competing against each other to create some of the most iconic edged weapons from history. In each episode, four of the best bladesmiths in the country will come together to put both their skills and reputations on the line. Whether they are making a Japanese katana, a medieval broadsword, or an ancient throwing blade like the chakram, the weapons they forge will be fully functional and lethal works of art and war. The unique histories contained within each weapon will be creatively told during the forging process and the final weapons themselves will be assessed and ruthlessly tested by our panel of expert judges. These dynamic and explosive tests will be individually designed to push the weapons to their absolute limit. One by one, the bladesmiths will be eliminated until only one remains to be crowned the champion.
For the first time, five novice smiths get their chance to be a part of the global phenomenon that is Forged in Fire. But they have to earn their way into the competition because one smith will be sent home before the first forge is ever lit. The four remaining competitors are tasked with forging a blade with steel from a mystery box of their choosing. After two intense rounds full of tough welding, bloody wounds, and clever workarounds, only two are left standing. They return to their home forges with just five days to recreate a 16th century weapon of war known as the War Golok. Which budding bladesmith will turn their admiration into domination and forge their name in history as a Forged In Fire Champion?
For the first time ever, the bladesmiths begin on a farm where they harvest steel from farming tools, then must use coal forges to make their signature blades with a hidden lanyard hole. Can they keep the fires burning to match the pace of the ticking clock? Ultimately only two smiths return to their home forges to recreate a decorated and deadly Schiavona sword for a chance to claim the title of Forged in Fire Champion.
