Two Forged in Fire bladesmiths re-create the legendary Sword of Saladin, one of the sharpest blades in the world, and the Forged in Fire judges test these beautiful blades to their limits. But the bladesmiths did so well that this was the closest decisions that Dave Baker has ever had to make. Both blades are wielded by edged weapons expert, Doug Marcaida, in the kill test.
