    Soooo....

    I went and did a thing back in early Feb. and filmed an episode for the Pilot Season of Knife or Death.

    It is a Cutting Competition spinoff show from Forged in Fire.

    Ads are already being shown on History Channel as it is just over 2 weeks from the first episode debut.

    The first Episode will air on Tuesday April 17 at 10pm.

    My Episode is scheduled to air on Tueday May 8 at 10pm.

    Here is a link to one of the first commercials being shown.
    The competitors shown are from the first episode to come on.



    I hope that you all are able to watch each and every episode.

    We cut the cable cord when we moved into our new house... might have to look into a Sling subscription so I can watch this!

    I have not been impressed with Sling I do like channels via Amazon and from what I hear Hulu is nice haven't used it myself since they killed off their free option.

    I took my Bladesports Competition Knife.
    Although it was under 10" blade they gave me an exception.
    It performed flawlessly, but given the opportunity I would make something slightly different knowing, what I know now.

    I’m looking forward to your episode.

    With your build and your blade and cutting geometry, it should be interesting. I wouldn’t be surprised if you sweep it.

    I just hope you took a moment on that big fish and didn’t rush through it. It’s taken down so many people...

    I would say that it is 90% to 95% plus.
    Sections will shave, and 98% of the edge will still cut printer paper.
    I have 2 small deformations and one chip.
    All in all I am very pleased with how the knife held up.

    That's awesome Chris. That is a brutal course. I've been wondering if they might throw a bone chop in at some point. That is pretty brutal on an edge especially if the edge cants/torques. Chipping, rolling or denting is a big factor.
