Forged in Fire airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HISTORY.

The hit competition series features world-class bladesmiths creating many of history’s most iconic edged weapons, from the War Hammer to the Egyptian Kopesh. In each episode, four master bladesmiths put their skills and reputations on the line, trying to avoid elimination while using traditional and state-of-the-art tools and machinery to turn raw metal into authentic, fully functional classic bladed weapons of yesteryear. The colourful histories of these weapons is told throughout the forging process, and then the weapons are assessed and tested by a panel of internationally recognized judges. Season 3 kicks off with a championship edition, bringing back former contestants to settle once and for all who is the best of the best in the forge in a lightning round of epic proportions.
