Unbelievable expectations of these Judges
Verified purchase
The judges are nuts thinking that the contestants can make a decent knife with a 3hour time limit and the junk steel that they supply. Why can’t they air condition that forge/studio? This is torture. Many get put down by the effects of heat stroke. It must be good because I keep watching every episode.
