It is double the competitors and double the heat in this first ever team challenge. Masters compete alongside their apprentices as they are forced to take turns on the forge floor, tag-teaming and fusing their skills to forge a cleaver using the arduous jellyroll technique. And in a shocking twist, one team will fracture, leaving one unlucky bladesmith to go it alone. In the final round, the smiths must forge a deadly Congolese chopper, the Nzappa Zap, in a final attempt to be named the first Forged in Fire Master and Apprentice champions.
