Forged in Fire--CB650

Postby Folsoml » Sat May 19, 2018 9:38 am

Does anyone here watch the show Forged in Fire? It is a blade smithing competition where people have just a few hours to forge knives in various scenarios. The knives are then tested for strength and durability by basically abusing them until they destroy something or the knife fails somehow. The people who run the show will make the competition difficult by forcing the competitors to use strange things to get the steel to make their blades.

Anyway, I saw on the previews for next weeks show, and the challenge they give them is that they have to harvest the steel to make their blades out of old motorcycles--one of which is a 1981 CB650!!! I wanted to cry watching them take torches and angle grinders to it! :cry:

I only saw the commercial. The actual episode comes on Tuesday. From what I could see, it looked pretty good!
