Forged in Fire: Knives Break in Strength Test (Season 5) | History

About the author


  1. Yeah i think it was quite obvious that Daniel was the better smith anyways. But congrats to the others for making it that far.

  2. I agree, he did make a blade under strenuous conditions in 3 hours. But can you really call it a "blade" if it's so brittle it snaps on the first swing? More of a showpiece.

    I couldn't do better, to be fair to the guy. But the first swing?

  3. 😕can't pay me enough.😕I knew test dummies are supposed to look realistic.😕but this guy's went all the way with this one😕dummy 😀I'm impressed.

  4. First time saw two blades breaking completely. This challenge was just not in level with what I have seen in other Forged in Fire episodes.
    I felt that the third bladesmith was lucky.

  5. I remember seeing this episode and realizing Daniel looked and sounded familiar, to which I realized he had his own show on history years ago.

  6. I'd love to see main brand names (Benchmade, CRKT, etc.) compete with their top of the line stuff and see how they hold up.

  7. I would like to see a video of all the blades that brake. I've tried finding one but I don't think there is.

  8. Is the dude using the weopens sick or something he always holds his hand near his chest and theirs always something like a tube sticking out

  9. Ok Smith's next up we are going to test your blade by putting it in water. remember this test we aren't interested what your blade does to the water but what the water does to your blade ! Ok Jason ur up! Ok Jason 1st off you made a very nice blade but unfortunately it suffered a catastrophic failure . After we pulled your blade out , the water made your blade wet! So for that I have to ask you to please leave the fordge!

  10. I know they always put their heart and soul into their work and do the best they can with what they're given, but it's always fun for me to watch their blades snap

  11. When he said “you never know until you test it “ I knew it was gonna break first swing i mean sure you can never be 100% without a test but knowing about heat treatment and other such things helps you dramatically up those odds and be at least 99% sure it wont break on the first swing he clearly doesn’t know enough yet.

  12. Wish they did the sharpness test first then the strength test,it sucks to see their good work get damaged and dull for the sharpness test.

  13. This show really demonstrates how fantastic Factory Knives have gotten.
    I respect the craft of custom knife making but its hard to compete $$$ wise with the factory knives for actual "use" knives.

  14. Why am I watching this at 6am…. and why was it recommended to me? Life works in mysterious ways, I’m waking up and telling my wife I’m quitting my job to forge my life in fire now.
