Forged in Fire

HISTORY | 9:00 pm

Four bladesmiths confront a challenge worthy of an ancient hero in the new episode "Sword of Perseus": forging a blade from Greek armor and artifacts using a five-layer technique known as the Go-Mai. After wrestling with steels of various hardness, two smiths eventually make it through the rigorous testing, then head home to recreate the mythical Sword of Perseus, a weapon formidable enough to take down the deadly Medusa. The one who triumphs takes home $10,000 and the title of Forged in Fire Champion.
