The Zweihander

Aired 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.

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?

Will both bladesmiths fall, or will one stand a cut above to be crowned the Forged in Fire champion?

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 Sword

Aired 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.

S 3 E 7

The Boar Spear

Aired 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?

S 3 E 6

Hunga Munga

Aired 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?

S 3 E 5

Aired on Sep 20, 2016

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.

S 3 E 4

The Falcata

Aired on Sep 13, 2016

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?

S 3 E 3
