Jerad, Lee, congratulations.
You guys have made it into the next phase
of this selection process.
What you're fighting for is the Navy Anvil
at the Battle of the Branches final competition
and a chance to win $50,000.
And now we're sending you back to your home forges
to recreate this military weapon from history--
the US Naval officer sword.
Awesome.
You'll have four days at your home forages
in which to complete all these parameters.
At the end of those four days, you'll
return and present your blades to our panel of expert judges.
After they've expertly tested them, they'll push one of you
forward into the Battle of the Branches competition.
Good luck, bladesmiths.
We'll see you in four days.
[sighs]
[music playing]
Today is day one.
And today, I'm working on forging
out the basic shape of the sword,
and maybe get to heat treat it.
The Navy way as slow is smooth.
Start slow, and it will turn into speed and perfection
later on.
I got my sword shaped out.
And I'm ready for a heat treat.
End of day one, no cracks.
I'm feeling pretty good.
I'm sitting well right now.
Yup.
That is sexy.
All right.
First thing I'm going to do today
is use my rotary tool and hand grind in my puller.
[grinding]
For a hand puller, you can't ask for much better.
Blade's ready to be quenched.
The one thing you always think about is, don't snap.
This is the moment.
Don't have a warp.
Snaps are fatal.
Warps are critical, but can be fixed.
[music playing]
Pull it out.
Uh oh.
It's hard.
But it's got a bow.
To the jig.
I have to get it in my straightening jig to see
if we get that pulled out.
Let's hope it straightened it.
If not, we go through that whole thing again.
Pick it up.
Look down it.
Bam.
We've got a straight blade.
10 minutes, Pigs Smiths.
You have 10 tiny minutes.
[laughs]
So, as of right now, my plan is to get some sheet steel,
use that for the majority of the leaf guard,
and then getting some steel for the knuckle guard
and braiding it.
Kind of give it a nautical Naval theme to it.
Try and make it look like some rope or line.
This wire's bulking up way more than I thought it would be.
I'm trying to braid this thing.
It's not moving the way I want it to.
I didn't want nearly as many gaps as this.
So I'm starting to get a little frustrated.
I still have a whole lot to do.
But, at the end of the day, I'm treating this
as if this is a $50,000 sword.
So I'm going to put every ounce energy I have into it.
I decided I'm just going to stick
this in the vise and start twisting
and until it looks like rope.
All right.
First things first.
Put the coffee down.
Pick the sword up.
Tempered last night, and the warp that I thought I had fixed
came back in the temper overnight.
Right down the edge.
Right down that spine.
I have to get this fixed before I move on with the sword.
[sighs]
To get this warp out, I'm going to have to pin it, heat up
the spine, then let it relax.
And, hopefully, the warp will come out.
A little tap.
But I can live with that.
It don't rock.
Finally get this warp out.
Still hard.
It's time to move on to the handle material.
I set up the Micarta handles by cutting them in rough shape
to fit the handle, drill the holes.
(SINGING) Like that.
Next, I needed to get the pommel so when
I do make the guard and knuckle bow, I know where to end it.
So I need the pommel next.
It's pretty blade heavy.
And it's going to need a big chunk of brass
to be able to balance that out.
Done.
[laughs]
All right, sailors.
Your weapons looks beautiful.
But it's time to find out if they're wall hangers
or they're actually something you could use to kill.
Jerad, you're up first.
You ready for this?
I'm ready.
Let's do this.
[music playing]
[laughs]
All right, Jerad.
The balance you have here feels good in the hand.
Now, your edge is very sharp.
As you can see, with every cut, it cuts deep.
For every thrust, all the way through and true.
Overall, sir, your weapon will kill.
Thank you.
Good job.
All right, Lee.
It's your turn.
You ready?
Yes, sir.
Let's do this.
That's a lot of hog to go through with a skinny blade.
I'm pretty nervous.
[music playing]
(WHISPERS) Good job.
(WHISPERS) Thanks.
All right, Lee.
The handle construction is comfortable.
Your edge, not one single glint or rolling.
Your tip punctures and cuts on the way out.
And overall, sir, it will kill.
Yes.
All right, gentlemen.
It's time for the strength test.
The dreaded flex test.
To test the strength of your blade,
I'll be bending it in both directions
up to that red point.
Jerad, you ready for this?
I guess.
OK.
[exhales heavily]
[music playing]
Ooh.
[laughs]
[exhales heavily]
I'm impressed.
Your blade is just as straight as when we started the test.
That's a really nice heat treat.
Thank you.
Holding your sword, you can shorten that handle
just a little bit scale-wise.
But, at the same time, it winds up being fairly comfortable.
Nicely done.
Thanks.
All right, Lee.
You're up.
You ready for this?
Yes, sir.
OK.
[music playing]
The longest five seconds of my life.
[music playing]
[exhales heavily]
Nice job, Lee.
The blade is still the same shape it started in.
That's impressive.
Thank you, sir.
Really good.
All right, gentlemen.
It's time for the sharpness test.
We call this the Fish Slice.
We're going to be lowering those fish down.
I'm just going to start cutting.
I'm going to keep cutting until I run out of fish.
All right, Jerad, you're up first.
Are you ready?
I'm ready.
OK.
[music playing]
[laughs] This is why I love sabers.
They are just so much fun to cut with.
Just passing right through the fish beautifully.
Your handle construction might be a little bit wide.
But it's comfortable and it stays in my hand.
I think you did a great job.
Thank you.
Lee, you're ready?
[sighs] Yes, sir.
OK.
[music playing]
All right, Lee.
Cuts beautifully.
I mean, the edge on this is wonderful.
The saber's definitely sharp, and a great balance.
Nicely done.
Thank you, sir.
Jerad and I are neck and neck.
I mean, both blades performed great.
Jerad, Lee, only one of you can move forward
and that smith is Lee.
Congratulations.
You'll be moving forward to represent
the United States Navy in the Battle of the Branches
final competition.
Congratulations. Good job.
Thank you.
Jerad, unfortunately, your blade didn't make the cut,
and David Baker is going to tell you why.
Jerad, you brought us an effective cutting sword.
But this came down to the basic details
of aesthetics and the way that weapons felt in my hand.
I understand.
Well, Jerad, come on forward, brother.
Good job, man.
This competition was such a learning experience for me.
Made a lot of good friends.
I had a great time.
Give them hell.
Good job, shipmate.
I didn't win.
But I did two very awesome swords.
Lee, you did well.
Give them hell.
And take it home from the Navy.
Lee, congratulations.
You forged your way into this final competition
where you'll compete against the Air Force, Army, and Marine
Corps to bring home the title of Forged
in Fire Champion to the United States Navy.
And you'll also be competing to receive a check for $50,000.
You've done a fantastic job.
You're only halfway there.
And we'll see you real soon.
Good job.
Thank you, sir.
I just won.
Really?
Really?
Really?
Being able to represent the Navy is an honor.
I am totally ready to do this all over again.
And I'm going to tell you guys to bring your A
game because I'm bringing mine.
