          Forged In Fire, the original competition series hosted by weapons expert and U.S. Army and Air Force veteran Wil Willis, returns for its fifth season as world-class bladesmiths compete to create history’s most iconic edged weapons. In each episode, four of the nation’s finest bladesmiths come together to put their skill and reputations on the line, trying to avoid elimination and win the $10,000 prize. They use sweat, fire, force of will, and a well-equipped forge to turn raw material into authentic, fully functional implements of war.
