In his 5 from the Grinder piece, Murray Carter said that television shows such as History’s Forged in Fire play an important role in introducing the public at large to the notion of a crafted knife.
“I think one of the most significant things in the past couple of years has been the Forged in Fire TV series on the History Channel. It is already (filming) Season 3, and looks like other TV producers are interested in the same theme. It has brought a new awareness to the forged blade, it has brought the concept of bladesmithing to the living rooms of many people across the world who never knew that knives could come out of any other setting than an industrial or factory setting.”
Season 3 premiers Tuesday August 23rd 8pm EDT. I will certainly be watching, will you?
