Forged in Fire (2021): S08E29 – Barrel Full of Mystery


Forged in Fire is an American competition series that airs on the History Channel, and is produced by Outpost Entertainment, a Leftfield Entertainment company.

History ordered an initial eight episodes of the series with the first programme premiering on Monday 22 June 2015, at 10.00 pm (US Eastern Time), and ending on 10 August 2010.


The smiths go through the “Pick of the Barrel” Challenge: a barrel with five different sources of mild steel (chains, pry bars, hammers, railroad spikes and horseshoes) attached to iron poles sticking out of the barrel. But what they can’t see is what’s actually inside the barrel. Attached to the poles are five different high-carbon steel which they have to make a blade out of. The easier the mild steel pick, the harder the high-carbon steel will be to use, and vice-versa.
