The ZweihanderAired on Jan 17, 2017
Four competitors must forge weld blades for friction folders from tiny cubes of steel. After hammering through the testing, two smiths will return home where they will forge a German Zweihander.

The PataAired on Jan 10, 2017
Over the course of three seasons, 26 bladesmiths have been crowned Forged in Fire champion. Tonight, prior winners return to prove who among them is the best of the best by forging a blade using canoe damascus. After two high octane rounds of competition, the two remaining champions will move to the final round where they must create a weapon known for its unique mechanics and deadly double-edged blade–the Pata. With $10,000 and their reputation on the line, which smith will survive the judges’ brutal testing to once again be crowned Forged in Fire champion?

Four new bladesmiths are put to the test when they must forge a bayonet blade and engineer it to attach to a rifle. After a round of grueling tests on their bayonets, the final two bladesmiths are sent home to spend five days forging the legendary African blade, the Zulu Iklwa. Will both bladesmiths fall, or will one stand a cut above to be crowned the Forged in Fire champion?
The PandatAired on Oct 18, 2016
Four bladesmiths must salvage steel from a junkyard to create a signature blade using a hand-cranked coal forge. After a smashing round of testing, only two will move onto the final round where they’ll have just five days to create a Dayak war sword, the Pandat. Will the blade’s unique shape leave victims in its wake, or will one rise to the top and be crowned Forged in Fire champion?
Xiphos SwordAired on Oct 11, 2016
When a group of new bladesmiths enters the forge, they’re met with a challenge they never saw coming. They must harvest the steel for their blade from an imposing piece of construction equipment, which proves to be a bigger task than they anticipate. After an intense round of testing and another elimination, the two remaining smiths face off to recreate a classic Greek sword used in close quarters combat. With a $10,000 prize on the line, both smiths turn out impressive blades for a final round of testing, but the judges will choose only one to be crowned Forged in Fire Champion.
The Boar SpearAired on Oct 04, 2016
Four bladesmiths must use the steel from a suit of armor to create a signature blade. After a tense round of testing, only two move on to the final round where they’ll have just five days to create a weapon historically used for both combat and hunting–the boar spear. Will the blade’s immense size cause them to fall short, or will one rise to the occasion and be crowned Forged in Fire champion?
Hunga MungaAired on Sep 27, 2016
Four new bladesmiths have their creativity put to the test when they are tasked with making a serrated blade out of only the tools from the table in front of them. They must harvest enough steel to forge the blade, but without melting down a crucial tool they might need later. Then, the final two bladesmiths attempt to forge a Hunga Munga–a behemoth weapon where all four edges must maintain peak performance when put through the judges’ gauntlet. Which bladesmith will prove worthy of a check for $10,000 and the title of Forged in Fire Champion?
Kora SwordAired on Sep 20, 2016
Four new bladesmiths step up to the challenge of forging blades using pieces of steel harvested from some monstrous power tools. While some smiths excel under the pressure, others are pushed to the limits of exhaustion in the heat of the Forge. After a vigorous round of testing, the final two go toe-to-toe in creating a sacrificial sword from history which could reportedly cut a sheep in half with one swing. After a formidable battle in the finale, only one will earn the title Forged in Fire Champion and take home $10,000.
The FalcataAired on Sep 13, 2016
Four bladesmiths must create a blade out of high carbon steel while also forging the hammer they’ll use to make it. After an extraordinary round of testing, only two move on to the final round where they’ll have just five days to create a weapon known for its deadly prowess against armored soldiers–the Falcata. Will the blade’s unique handle shape leave them open to a devastating blow, or will one smith be able to slice their way to the $10,000?
