Season 1 episodes (8)

1 Japanese Katana
In this explosive new series, four bladesmiths will compete for $10,000 and the title of Forged in Fire champion.
2 Chakram
Four bladesmiths must forge a weapon using only reclaimed metal. With the clock winding down, two of the competitors are dramatically forced to improvise, and one almost doesn't make it through the round at all.
3 Viking
The bladesmiths must transform a steel "train spring" into a weapon of their choosing. Only two competitors will move on and are given just five days to forge a legendary Viking Battle Axe.
4 Katar
For this week's challenge the competitors create their signature blade by using the Hada technique--a traditional process that involves forging multiple layers of steel together.
5 Crusader Sword
The forge heats up as our four bladesmiths struggle create a special Japanese hardening technique on their signature blades.
6 The Elizabethan Rapier
The forge heats up as the bladesmiths must use an age-old technique to create their signature weapons. But will their swords make the cut when the judges put them through a battery of tests?
7 The Roman Gladius
Four bladesmiths heat, hammer and grind their way through a first round challenge where they must transform a steel ball bearing into a fully functional weapon.
8 The Moro Kris
The bladesmiths must forge a signature weapon using everyday steel objects like ball bearings and shovels as their only source material. One contestant puts finishing his weapon before his own safety in a heated race to the finish.

The first reality show I've been into since survivor season 1. I don't know anything about knife making, which i guess makes this show even more interesting to me heck, just hearing that third judge say "it will kill" every week makes this show worth it. That guy is AWESOME

After the first season I can say that I have enjoyed it quite a lot. However, it just seems to be lacking some personality compared to other shows of this nature. Still a good watch, even if you don't know a lot about metal forging like myself.
