Trivia

Canister damascus challenges are popular for the difficulty of the technique. When the clock is ticking and cameras are rolling contestants often do not or forget to let the white out dry all the way. (honestly cant blame them given the unique circumstances!) This often results in a poor quality surface layer on the new billet and difficulty removing the can. The time it takes to let the white out dry is much less than that of resurfacing a billet and or fighting a canister that is partially welded to your billet. See more »

Not typical reality garbage, legit science and skill!!
17 March 2016 | by usnhospitalcorpsmanSee all my reviews

Seriously good production. Exciting and engaging for anyone that enjoys building something with your hands and seeing it perform. Unlike most other shows on TV these days, this competition has NO manufactured drama and actually shows the smiths bonding even during competition, this displays American values in almost every episode. Those that are eliminated show that not everyone can win, not everyone gets a trophy, even if they work hard, and most of them are very humble and accepting that they were out performed. Not only do you get a well produced and well written show, the set "design" rocks - it's a real, no BS forge! I think the most important thing though is that you ACTUALLY LEARN STUFF like SCIENCE and SKILLS. Highly, highly recommended and I anxiously await every new episode!!
