Flensing knife (like the one on board the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship in existence): Blacksmith’s knife (with a skeleton handle, using rusted metal that was fished out of the ocean).
In a Forged in Fire first, three bladesmiths head to historic Mystic Seaport for a nautical themed competition. After a gruelling round of coal forging, two travel back to their home forges to recreate another vital maritime tool: the Flensing Knife.
In this episode, The Forge moves to the Mystic Seaport Museum in Mystic, Connecticut where the competition goes back to blacksmithing of old. Three smiths craft from a coal forge just like they did for the many wooden ships still docked on site. Also on location is the James D. Driggs Shipsmith & Whalecraft Shop where blacksmiths and boatwrights fuelled maritime history by crafting metal parts for the many vessels throughout the centuries.
