  • Forged In Fire

    has anyone followed the Forged In Fire on the History Channel .... their new season starts on Jan 10 at 10PM eastern .... granted there is some drama involved but its really interesting watching the contestants forge various types of contemporary and historic blades, axes, spear points and such .... the process for producing Damascus steel is fascinating

    I started watching it halfway through last season. I didn't think i was going to like it but then it grew on me. I was able to watch all of the season on rerun's. It is unbelievable what these guys make.

      Yes I watched it, and it is interesting they go to junk yards to find good steel.
      Something with some carbon in it, instead of this crap we import.

          I have watched it a few times. If I could make a suggestion it would be to take the race element out of the equation. Making a knife is not a race event.

                  My youngest grandson & I watch it together every week and last night was good, kind of a shocker as we both figured Theo would have been the 1st one sent home & he won. We love to guess who will win from the beginning of the show.

                          I enjoy that show myself. It got me on a path to build a few knives myself. I am cutting out another blade from 1095 steel today.
