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.
Bladesmiths must forge a bayonet and engineer it to attach to a rifle; the final two smiths must spend five days forging the legendary African blade, the Zulu Iklwa.
Four bladesmiths must create a signature blade using a mystery technique; after a round of testing, two will return to their home forges where they will reproduce a Japanese naginata.
For the first time ever, four bladesmiths use high carbon steel to forge a hatchet; two finalists have just five days to create an ancient Indian weapon used to both stab and slice.
Four previously eliminated bladesmiths return to the forge for a shot at redemption; after two rounds of competition, the two remaining smiths face off to recreate a Viking sword known for its devastating strength.
