We love watching the Forge in Fire TV show! It’s quite a skill to make those swords and knives from all ages of history and geography. If you like the show, then you might like to make yourself a Forged in Fire T-Shirt with our free SVG (unaffiliated and unsponsored).
The contests strive to pass each round of the show with various tasks to complete their projects with tests of their blades at every stage. It’s so cool to see the craftsmanship and the way they make the blades. Almost mesmerizing. It’s a fascinating show and the judges have their own character that adds to the delight. I like the way everyone is treated with respect and they instill a sense of respect and honor as they call the judges Sir. The winner takes home the title and $10,000 cash award.
This would make a great gift for any fan of the show and a great Father’s Day gift too!
This SVG is a little bit complicated, of course or it wouldn’t be in true form to the show. So watch the video as I explain how to assemble the layers and show you the end result in How to Make a Forged In Fire T-Shirt.
