Another vote for Man at Arms: Reforged  :tu:

It would be fair to say they make knives in the first round and edged weapons in the second round.

Quite frankly, knives don't kill people, people kill people  :P ,  and a steak knife in your kitchen does the job as well as anything else.

Mini-spoiler, watch Dave Baker's reaction when Doug demonstrates the use of a karambit on him  :rofl:

I view myself as a junior member of that fraternity, and if you make knives a sharp edge is the goal, not something to be squeamish about  :gimme:

Man at arms reforged is a great utube channel. They did a utube quickie update recently that they are going to be doing a tv show soon too. That should be a good one to watch.

At least two of the Man at Arms dudes have taken part in FiF, I believe both won their rounds......stand to be corrected.

I would love working there  :gimme:

Deadliest Warrior on SpikeTV down here. My little guy and I liked that but FiF even more.

That's the one!  Modern Warrior didn't sound right.  :D

Loving the show here too -- on the other side of the world!

Not sure what season is showing on TV but I have the utmost respect for all the contestants in that show!

Since I'm binge watching season 4 please excuse the lack of details, but one of the contestant said the 2 great sins of a blacksmith is hitting cold steel and under-charging for your work.

That's why I decided a while ago already to stop taking orders (I had 3 orders  :rofl: ) or trying to sell anything.  I'm making what I like, and if anybody likes it as much and is willing to pay a fair price, they can have it.

If that works out I'll have an excellent collection  :drink:


I'm liking the new season, I just think they don't need to be desperate about finding new challenges, nothing wrong with recycling old ones. 

They need only worry about running out of blade smiths, and when they do there are several South African blade smiths I would love to see on the show  :gimme: I know of one that has auditioned.  :cheers:

I totally blame that show for my dreams now being mangled up with anvils, belt grinders, hydraulic hammers and kilns - and some voice saying "it will kill". I might need therapy :)

Seriously though I'm quite fond of the show - actually fond of most shows which showcases various kinds of craftmansship.

Agreed- that was what I liked most about the early days of Mythbusters.  I love watching folks build things.

Counting Cars in the early days used to go into the build details and that was great, but then they started to get more and more into the sob stories of people, similar to what Extreme Home Makeover did, and eventually seemed like it was just a very expensive charity show.

 :salute: I need a few years practice for sure.... :rofl:

I'm constantly surprised by the contestants, the variety, the skill....or the lack thereof.

At this stage, my kingdom for a real belt grinder and a power hammer...... :facepalm:

I failed to get a screen shot but David Baker looked to be wearing a Leatherman Tread bracelet in the last episode.

Season 5 probably only has a few episodes left, and I enjoyed it as much as ever.

I'm scared the show becomes a victim of it's own success, I believe they have a winning recipe and they're not likely to run out of contestants anytime soon (which is in itself amazing).

I would like to see episodes dedicated to international contestants, as well as 2nd opportunities for guys like Walter Sorrels etc.

I read an article in the Houston Chronicle about this show and one of the Texas winners. Many of the winners learned at a blacksmith school in San Antonio.

Thanks to HoJ forge on Youtube I know I don't meet the requirements yet, not that I have aspirations, but because forging blades is something I do I'm humbled by the skills, and just as upset when people show up unprepared.....part of the show I guess  :cheers:

I'm aware of some negative vibes out on the interwebs about the show, but I believe if SHTF it will have contributed to there being enough knives post-SHTF  :rofl:

I enjoy seeing all the young blade smiths competing or trying to make a name.  Been fun watching the show grow and the camaraderie of the smiths.

I enjoy, so does my wife, at least she seems to as she does not pick at it when I watch the DVR copy.

Tonight's episode is to start a 20 competitor invitational, I believe for 5 episodes for a purse of $50,000 to final winner.   Not certain the format for eliminating smiths but sure it will be interesting.

The show has evolved, beyond the hammering and sharpening, to the smiths need ing to understand the metals they are working, and welding metals together.   Brains as well brawn with talent.

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Just started season 2... fun so far. What concerns me is that Weapon == hacking tool for them. The judges even mock contestants for adding cross-guard (which is what makes it a weapon IMO). Oh and Doug Marcaida has to work on his cutting technique, especially with longer blades, its not called draw-cut for no reason. But overall I'm impressed by the judges, they do a really good job with quality/functionality over looks (I once watched a model-casting show and they sent a contestant home in the 5th round, because she was too short... what did they expect, that she would grow???).

And what some cook up in 3h / 5days wowzzeeeeee :o

Watched it last night so now I understand what you mean........fascinating concept for what I assume is the last episodes of the season......

DM took a lot of flack for some of the tests, but I think 99% of us couldn't do better.

I'm itching to do the FIF Youtube 3-hour challenge, hopefully I can give it a try in December.

The more seasons, the more episodes....the better my chances of winning $10000!  :woohoo:
And to put that into perspective....that how much my car cost that I'm paying off over 5 years.....
