I wonder if the show should post a disclaimer before every episode after what happened in upstate New York the other day.

http://www.newyorkupstate.com/capita...y_tv_show.html

Three square blocks, burned to the ground. They described his an amateur blacksmith, so I guess it was to be expected. No self respecting pro would ever allow things to get so out of hand.

I hope.

Good episode. Pretty crazy Chinese blade had to make got the final- some serious thought had to go into that and heat treating must have been a real pain.

I like the new spin off of the show, knife or death. No crazy 3 hours to make a damascus knife out horseshoes and nails. You make a knife or sword to the best of your ability and see how it does. One smith from the show made a sword and they had to stop the guy using half way through because it kept breaking apart.

First episode been really disappointed in. Sigh...

They had the contestants make a Rambo movie survival knife. Kept on mentioning the 1982 movie. But the knife they showed was ftom Rambo III.

I would like to have seen them construct the hollow handle smile knife form the original movie.

All they ended up making were large signature Bowie pretty much.


And the competition, eliminations were terrible.

I was looking forward to the spinoff especially when I heard Tu Lam was hosting but that loudmouth Goldberg messes it up. I was hoping wed see some knife skills by Tu. He should have been the one testing the blades to see if they were up to snuff for competition.

I DVRd the shows & fast forwarded through everything but the competition course.

Still watch the original Forged show. I have 2 I need to watch now.

I agree - bring your best and do your best. The quality of weapons is at a whole different level. We see far better variety on FIF, tho.

Here is a pic (not a good one) I took of some original Forged in Fire steel. I took this today at the Toledo Military museum. The craftsmanship is amazing and the pic doesn't come even close to showing the detail. Its as fine as any of the art we saw yesterday at the Prado. If you're in the area, I recommend dropping in and checking it out, some pretty cool exhibits.
