An original competition series hosted by weapons expert and U.S. Army and Air Force veteran Wil Willis, Forged in Fire features world-class bladesmiths competing to create history’s most iconic edged weapons. In each episode, four of the nation’s finest bladesmiths come together to put their skill and reputations on the line to win the $10,000 prize.
