Eight military veterans who competed in The Forge are brought back for this season’s Armed Forces Redeployment Tournament. This time, some of the best bladesmiths and toughest American warriors battle it out in four head-to-head duels. Eight former competitors and US service members will be redeployed to The Forge, building a blade from start to finish in one five-hour round. During the duels, the bladesmiths pick 1 out of 5 different knife handles that are sticking out of an ammo crate. Attached to those handles are five unique blades from US military history that the competitors must copy. The winner of each duel will take home a check for $2,000 and earn themselves a seat in the final battle of the tournament where they will face tough competition for a chance of winning $10,000 and the ever-coveted title of “Forged in Fire Champion”.
