Skilled martial artists, expert bladesmiths, and a ferrier will step up to the toughest knife course ever created with their custom made weapons. Will the Roman Gladius dominate just like it did thousands of years ago? Or can a Machete teach the older blades some new tricks? And will the self-proclaimed 'Mother of All Bowies' live up to its name? The fastest two competitors go head-to-head on the daunting final course - "Dead Run." One will return for the finale and compete to win the title of Knife or Death Champion and $20,000.
