Forged In Fire Season 3
"Forged in Fire" returns for season three with an increased episode order from 10 one-hour episodes to 16. The hit competition series features world-class bladesmiths creating many of history's most iconic edged weapons, from the War Hammer to the Egyptian Kopesh. In each episode, four master bladesmiths will put their skills and reputations on the line, trying to avoid elimination while using traditional and state-of-the-art tools and machinery to turn raw metal into authentic, fully functional classic bladed weapons of yesteryear. In the hands of these gifted craftsmen, every weapon is not just a lethal instrument of war, but also an elegant work of art. The colorful histories of these weapons will be told throughout the forging process, and then the weapons will be assessed and tested by a panel of internationally recognized judges. Season three will kick off with a championship edition, bringing back former contestants to settle once and for all who is the best of the best in the forge in a lightning round of epic proportions.
