Bladesmiths Chase Register and Brandon Williams give us a guided tour of their personal forges. Chase's shop includes two vintage power tools that were once his grandfather's, and Brandon's includes a custom build horizontal grinder.
In this explosive new series, four bladesmiths will compete for $10,000 and the title of Forged in Fire champion. Their work will be put to the test, and those that fail will be sent home. In the final round, the two remaining bladesmiths must forge one of the most iconic weapons from history; the Japanese Katana.
Four brave smiths are thrown for a loop when they must forge together rusty chain mail and high quality steel to produce Knights Templar Crusader Daggers in Round 1.
Problem solving is front and center as our bladesmiths are asked to transform failed blades from last season into fully functional weapons. After a difficult 1st round of testing, the remaining two bladesmiths head home with just five days to forge the legendary Cutlass Sword.
