Expert bladesmiths and skilled martial artists bring their custom blades to the toughest knife course ever created. Will a Filipino Kambantuli steal the show? Or will the two-handed Roman Gladius be too much to handle? And can a Persian style Recurve stay sharp? The final two competitors go head-to-head on the daunting second course — “Dead Run”. Only one can move on to the finale, and compete for the chance to win $20,000 and the title of Knife or Death Champion.
