Forged in Fire Season 8 Episode 19 Recap

In Episode 19, titled ‘Arctic Forge,’ four smiths face each other in another blade designing challenge. In the first round, they are given a definite amount of steel that they must use to model their latest creation. The players have the freedom to forge the metal in whatever way they deem appropriate. The metal can sometimes be chosen from a collection of different substances, or they can even extract it from a source. But in this episode, the smiths are given the same starting material.

The host then pitches the criteria of the blade in terms of length and other necessary features needed to be included. The smiths are supposed to create sketches of their designs within ten minutes, after which they can use three hours to shape up the blades. After their time is up, the judges examine and inspect the final products based on the criteria previously established along with the quality of the blade. With each round, one of the smiths gets eliminated as their weapons are tested for performance. In the end, the judges give their verdict and decide who gets the $10,000 prize and the day’s championship title.
