  • 00:00:01,950 --> 00:00:04,260 Colt and Scott, in this competition

  • we were inspired by history's legends.

  • Now we ask that you continue to be inspired by history's

  • legends as we send you back to your home

  • forge to make one of these.

  • 00:00:17,390 --> 00:00:20,510 Excalibur!

  • It's actually not Excalibur.

  • The sword in the stone is a medieval broadsword.

  • Good luck, bladesmiths.

  • We'll see you in four days.

  • 00:00:33,585 --> 00:00:36,440 SCOTT: Today, I'm making a European broadsword.

  • I'm going to do two types of twisted masses

  • going opposite directions and a linear bar for the center.

  • I am very happy to be back home.

  • I know that I have all the proper tooling to do stuff very

  • quickly, but I think it's going to be

  • a very challenging competition.

  • It's the end of day one.

  • I got the twisted masses done.

  • I've got to cut them to size and then clean up the edges

  • that I'm going to reweld.

  • That's where it's at right now.

  • I'm feeling pretty nervous going into the clench,

  • really hoping I don't get any warps or cracks.

  • 00:01:17,168 --> 00:01:18,590 Oh, [BLEEP].

  • COLT: It's taken a warp.

  • I'm really struggling here.

  • I'm bending it, seeing if it will straighten.

  • I'm heating it up with a torch and trying

  • to drop water droplets on it to see if I

  • can set it back into shape.

  • I finally get this warp out by taking my pair of tongs

  • and pushing down on the sword.

  • That straightened it out a little bit.

  • Trying to fix the warp really set me back,

  • but tomorrow I'm going to come in with a fresh mind

  • and see what I can get done.

  • SCOTT: Yesterday was really productive.

  • I got the three bars of Damascus put

  • together, forged out to a sword, and then I got it ground down.

  • Today's most important thing is getting that heat treat done.

  • If I can get it done early, I can focus on the handle

  • for the rest of the build.

  • 00:02:09,210 --> 00:02:14,210 It's pretty straight, and it definitely heat treated.

  • I'm just going to clamp it while it cools.

  • I thought I had the heat treat right,

  • but unfortunately after I pull it out,

  • it's got a nice warp in it.

  • Oh, [BLEEP].

  • 00:02:26,890 --> 00:02:29,369 It looks like I might have to heat treat again.

  • The one difference is I'm going to use my quench tank

  • as my temper oil.

  • I'm going to get the oil up to the same temperatures

  • as I would the oven, to about 450 degrees,

  • then hold my sword in it for at least 10 minutes

  • so it gets a nice soak.

  • 00:02:46,800 --> 00:02:50,920 Pull it out of the quench, and it comes out almost perfect.

  • All I have to do tomorrow is fit and finish,

  • guard, handle, pommel.

  • COLTON: The theme of day three is handles and guards.

  • All that needs to be done is etching

  • and sharpening on the blade.

  • I'm going to acid etch the blade now, let it

  • sit in there for a few minutes.

  • So the top of the blade is not hardened as much

  • as I would like it to be.

  • I want to make sure that it's not

  • going to take a bend or a set.

  • 00:03:21,990 --> 00:03:24,160 It seems to have held up pretty well,

  • so the last thing I need to do is the handle.

  • It's the end of day three.

  • I have the finished blade.

  • I've got the guard fit up.

  • The handle is shaped like I want it.

  • All I have left to do is the pommel, and it's done.

  • SCOTT: Beginning of day four, I'm ready to get

  • the sword finished.

  • First I need to get the holes drilled

  • on the guard and the pommel.

  • And that's all I need.

  • It's looking pretty good.

  • End of day four, this broadsword is built,

  • and I am ready to go have dinner with my wife.

  • All right, bladesmiths, welcome to the kill test.

  • It's time to get medieval on your broadsword.

  • I'm going to take your weapons, deliver some slashes and blows

  • on this ballistics dummy.

  • Colton, you're up first.

  • You ready for this?

  • Yeah.

  • Let's have fun.

  • COLTON: I'm feeling confident about my sword,

  • but I really don't know what could go wrong.

  • I've never made a sword before.

  • 00:04:28,196 --> 00:04:32,180 [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • 00:04:47,618 --> 00:04:50,690 That thing was sharp.

  • DOUG: All right, Colton, first up, I really appreciate

  • the balance you have with this because it's

  • easy to wield with forward slashes, back hands,

  • and thrusting with it.

  • Your edge is sharp.

  • Now your handle, it's just a little bit too tall

  • for me in the tense of it's wider here.

  • But I can still get a good grip on it,

  • and more importantly, this sword, with its balance,

  • it will kill.

  • Thank you.

  • All right, Scott.

  • It's your turn, sir. You ready?

  • Yes, sir.

  • DOUG: Let's do this.

  • I'm ecstatic to see Doug playing with my sword

  • because it's exciting to see what

  • it can do to the human body, what it's built for.

  • 00:05:31,098 --> 00:05:34,584 [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • 00:05:54,006 --> 00:05:55,539 All right, Scott.

  • First up, that is beautiful to look at.

  • Thank you.

  • DOUG: Now the wire wrap does give me some kind

  • of contours to hold onto.

  • Every slice-- or should I say chop--

  • dug deep into this ballistics dummy.

  • Overall, the kind of weapon and damage you can do with this,

  • it will kill.

  • Thank you.

  • 00:06:20,000 --> 00:06:21,000 All right, gentlemen.

  • It's time for the strength test.

  • Now to test the strength and overall construction

  • of your blades, we have the battering-ram chop.

  • Colton, you're up first.

  • You ready? - All right.

  • OK.

  • 00:06:36,150 --> 00:06:39,599 I'm worried that my blade is almost too light.

  • I made this blade for slicing, not chopping trees down.

  • 00:06:47,648 --> 00:06:51,616 [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • 00:07:14,950 --> 00:07:17,260 So Colton, there's some definite issues

  • in the heat treat.

  • Right here at the guard, you picked up a bend,

  • and it's not a warp.

  • This sword is now bent.

  • And also up here where the sword is the thinnest

  • right at the end of the fuller.

  • It's a beautiful piece, but that's a major problem.

  • 00:07:39,900 --> 00:07:40,599 That's severe.

  • Does it feel like it could continue testing?

  • I wouldn't.

  • I mean, it's like a gun barrel that's already curved.

  • I don't want to fire something like that if it's not extreme.

  • If it's here, it's one thing, but it's all the way.

  • It starts at the handle.

  • Yeah, I mean, it's already failed as far as I'm concerned.

  • I'm seeing the judges talking, and it's nerve wracking.

  • 00:08:00,000 --> 00:08:02,909 All right, Colton, there's a problem with your blade.

  • The judges have given your blade a vote of no confidence.

  • In other words, it held together,

  • but it's not safe to move forward in testing.

  • That doesn't mean that you've lost this competition.

  • Scott, your blade still has to hold up in this strength test.

  • Dave?

  • 00:08:20,530 --> 00:08:22,130 SCOTT: I am very nervous.

  • I am very, very nervous.

  • I don't know how it's going to do.

  • All I can do is trust that I built it correctly.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • 00:08:48,850 --> 00:08:52,990 So right off, Scott, everything's solid and tight.

  • All in all, I think you did a great job.

  • Nicely done.

  • Thank you.

  • 00:09:00,000 --> 00:09:03,760 Colton, unfortunately for you, this means that your blade

  • doesn't make the cut, and you cannot be the "Forged in Fire"

  • champion.

  • For that reason, I'd like to invite you to shake our hands,

  • shake Scott's hand, and then please leave the forge.

  • Come on forward, my friend.

  • How old are you?

  • 18.

  • Hey, man, the world's yours.

  • I knew the bend could have possibly happened.

  • He outperformed me, and that's OK with me.

  • I can be outdone.

  • Good job.

  • Thank you.

  • I might not have worn "Forged in Fire,"

  • but I have learned so much as a bladesmith,

  • and I have grown as a person doing this competition.

  • Scott, congratulations.

  • You are the "Forged in Fire" champion,

  • and that is a title that comes with a check for $10,000.

  • Good job, my friend.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Thank you.

  • Come on forward.

  • Excellent. - Thank you.

  • SCOTT: I won.

  • My blade survived.

  • I feel ecstatic, amazed, however you want to say.

  • I hope that by doing this, I can go full-time bladesmithing.

00:00:01,950 --> 00:00:04,260 Colt and Scott, in this competition
