Milkman. Travel agent. Cobbler. Blacksmith. These professions are incredibly rare, if not outright extinct in many parts of the world. Well, except for that last one. Forged in Fire is a rip-roaring competition of the best blacksmiths working.
Each season, talented smiths craft all manner of swords from rapiers to claymores for a panel of blade judges. These include a Master Smith J. Neilson, Deadliest Warrior prop master David Bake, U.S. military contractor Doug Marcaida, and two-time show champion Ben Abbot. The competition gets hotter and hotter as the season progresses, where smiths must craft more and more elaborate blades, facing even stronger scrutiny from honed judges.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Forged in Fire.
