Last week, in ‘Forged in Fire’ season 8’s 2nd episode, we had met four talented bladesmiths (Kyle Farace, Ben Allanson, Zach Tarbell, and A.J. Saracinello), trying to perfect the art of making a signature blade — using canister Damascus from round tubes. The final round tasks them with making the complicated Indian weapon, Vajra Mushti. The winner is Kyle, who takes home the cash prize of $10,000 while being crowned as the champion for week two.
The 3rd episode, which landed this week, is titled ‘The Legendary Sword of Saladin’, where four new bladesmiths need to carve the titular sword. More on that later. Now, the series is geared up to release its next episode. And here is everything you need to know about it.
