Forged in Fire is a competition show pitting master weapon makers against each other. Each week, four of the best blade smiths in the country will come together to put both their skills and reputations on the line. The first two rounds will consist of contestants making their own weapons, while in the final round the final two contestants will be challenged to create a particular weapon within a specified time limit. Each week, only one will remain to win a cash prize of $10k.

Good show, nice to watch the artist create stuff and I think the judging is pretty good.
Nice to show a part of the world that is blacksmithing. So far so good. Episode 1 !
Excellent show. As an armature knife maker, many of the techniques, and failures, I have seen so far on the show I have experienced over the years. If you want to start making knives, or want to make better knives, watch Forged in Fire!!!
Really great show with awesome judges and great contestants
