Don’t try this at home!

Like the man in New York who was inspired by the series and tried to forge a piece of metal over a fire in a barrel near his home.  He caused a fire that destroyed three residential buildings and damaged 28 others.

Special episodes in season four include ‘Master & Apprentice’ with the forging time in the first round extended to three and a half hours, and ‘The Ultimate Champions Edition’ featuring five bladesmiths, who had to forge a type of blade at their homes and bring them to the studio for a test. And for the first time, it’s judge against judge when they pick a past bladesmith to represent them.

The best bladed weapon makers in the US go head-to-head, building everything including Viking battle axes, Samurai swords and Indian claw daggers. Every week sees four new contestants and weapons in a show that turns the craftsmanship, legend and excitement of weapon building into an against-the-clock battle of wits, resourcefulness and ingenuity.

Contestants compete over a series of three-round elimination challenges employing the ‘garage’ of tools provided. Each challenge centres on fabricating a component of the overall weapon, to be judged by a panel of esteemed experts.  The race to create the episode’s weapon of choice is a journey through combat history under Mission Impossible time constraints, with an explosive finale.
