There are so many exciting things happening right now that it is hard to choose what to talk about, but I want to get the word out about a new show on the History Channel called Forged in Fire. It's a great show to get a behind-the-sceens peek at how bladesmiths work their magic and also, I'm on it - so be sure to tune in! My episode premiers AUGUST 3rd at 10:00pm on the History Channel (but you can also catch me a couple of times in the intro, which is fun). Below is the about blurb from the History Channel's website to give you an idea of what it's all about:
"FORGED IN FIRE features world-class bladesmiths competing against each other to create some of the most iconic edged weapons from history. In each episode, four of the best bladesmiths in the country will come together to put both their skills and reputations on the line. Whether they are making a Japanese katana, a medieval broadsword, or an ancient throwing blade like the chakram, the weapons they forge will be fully functional and lethal works of art and war. The unique histories contained within each weapon will be creatively told during the forging process and the final weapons themselves will be assessed and ruthlessly tested by our panel of expert judges. These dynamic and explosive tests will be individually designed to push the weapons to their absolute limit. One by one, the bladesmiths will be eliminated until only one remains to be crowned the champion."
Thanks for tuning in!
