Forged in Fire Season 8 Episode 4 Recap

The 4th episode is called ‘M1905 Springfield Bayonet’, which revolves around the 1905 bayonet, which was created for the U.S. M1903 Springfield rifle. In 1917, the name was altered to Model 1905, and then in 1925, it was changed to M1905. This 16-inch steel blade comes with a 4-inch handle, embedded with wooden or plastic grips.

In the episode, we meet a fresh batch of four new smiths, who are required to use their math skills to calculate the exact quantity of steel needed to create their signature blades. Following a couple of grueling rounds, two of the top-performing smiths go back home to build the intricate M1905 Springfield Bayonet. So, who won this week’s episode?
