Last week, in ‘Forged in Fire’ season 8’s 6th episode, we had met four talented bladesmiths (Stryker Gooch, Pablo Martinez, Jaron Martindale, and Kodie Brewster) as they try their best to make the signature blade — using steel from Santa’s sleigh. The final round tasks them with making the intricate George Washington’s battle sword. The winner is Stryker who takes home the cash prize of $10,000 while being crowned as the champion for week 6.

The 7th episode, which landed this week, is titled Judges’ Home Forge Battle, where the judges get head to head in the most epic battle ever. More on that later. Now, the series is geared up to release its next episode. And here is everything you need to know about it.
