On this all-new competition show, the best bladed weapon-makers in the country go head-to-head building everything from Viking battle axes to Samurai swords to Indian claw daggers. There will be new weapons and contestants every week, and stunning tests of their creations. In each stand-alone episode, four new contestants battle it out in a quest to prove they can build a particular weapon better than anyone else--and they're doing it by hand. This is the show that turns the craftsmanship, legend and excitement of weapons-building into an against-the-clock battle of wits, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. Contestants compete over a series of elimination challenges using the "garage" of tools provided. Each challenge centers on fabricating a component of the overall weapon. Judged by an esteemed panel of unimpeachable weapons experts, the race to create the episode's weapon of choice is a journey through weapon history under Mission Impossible time constraints with an explosive finale.
Four Forged in Fire champions return for a chance to prove who among them is the best of the best. Only two will move on to the final round where they will have only 5 days to create the Scottish Claymore.
4 former contestants return back to the Forge by popular demand, for a second shot at victory. After 2 grueling rounds, only 2 are left to recreate a weapon they've never seen before, The Hook Sword.
