Last week, in ‘Forged in Fire’ season 8’s 7th episode, we had the chance to witness a home quarantine special filler. We have three of the judges confined to their homes and forging blades over a fortnight. They then test the blades on their own while filming the whole process on their cameras. Ben Abbott forges a replica Sutton Hoo pattern-welded sword, which had apparently belonged to King Raedwald. On the other hand, J. Neilson forges a competition chopper, using a combo of canister Damascus and sanmai techniques. Finally, David Baker creates a basket-hilted sword, while using a historical recreation 12-piece decorated basket, coupled with a Damascus blade. J.’s wife Beckie is seen complaining about the absence of camera crews.
The 8th episode, which landed this week, is titled ‘The Massive Maguro Bocho’, where the smiths need to create a cleaver by using steel from meat hooks. 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.
