Forged in Fire
Wednesdays at 7.30pm AEDT from October 11 until May 2
Forged in Fire: 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 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.
Forged in Fire 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 centre 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.
