America’s top bladesmiths, martial artists, and bladesport competitors bring their historical, custom made weapons to an intimidating knife course designed to test their skills. Can a Filipino Panabas produce a flawless run? Or will a War Dirk be ready to do battle for the top spot? And which Kukri will go the farthest? Only two competitors advance to face off on the punishing final course – “Dead Run.” The last one standing will move on to the finale and a shot at $20,000 and the Knife or Death Champion crown.
