Adult division -- for 16 and under, look at the Youth version happening at the same time. Judged by Forged In Fire contestants!! The challenge: Forge a blade within the specified parameters using the materials provided. Round 1: The blade must be forged, rough ground, and quenched in 3 hours. A panel of judges will review the knives and provide feedback. Knives are kept at Kilroy's and tempered. In this case, we are not eliminating anyone, but rather we provide feedback that the smith should use when working during round 2. Round 2: Contestants have 3 hours to address any issues identified in Round 1, affix a handle, and sharpen. If deemed safe, judges will conduct tests to challenge the contestant's work and present the winner in each age group with a certificate, and place the name and picture on the wall as the 2021 winner.
