When a group of new bladesmiths enter the forge, they're met with a challenge they never saw coming. They must grab the steel they'll use to make their blades from an imposing piece of construction equipment. This isn't the kind of scrap metal they're used to harvesting and just pulling the right type of steel proves to be a bigger task than any of them anticipate. After an intense round of testing, two remaining smiths face off to recreate a classic Greek sword used in close quarters combat. With a $10,000 prize on the line, both smiths turn out impressive blades for a final round of testing, but the Gods will choose only one to be crowned Forged in Fire Champion.
