Neighborhood Nerd Competes on FiF


Recommended Posts

It's My privilege and honor to announce that I was blessed with the opportunity to compete on Forged in Fire. For those of you who do not know, I will be in this Tuesday's Episode on the History channel at 9pm EST. Regardless of the outcome I made 3 lifelong friends and had the time of my life with these Smiths roaming around NYC. Tune in and Cheer for your local Nerd on national TV 1f603.png

 

The experience was nothing but awesome all the way around.

Nice work Gabe good to see you pull out a win....On the more humorous side of things the pommel in your hand looks like you're holding a big set of balls....LOL

Are there bigger pictures of that hamon?  Don't hold out on me Gabe!

And congrats on your win!  Hope that yours winnings do some good things in your life :)

I have a cell phone video i took haphazardly before i had to crate it up. But the compression makes it just look like blah. It looks decent on my phone.... idk  I should have went for a very high contrast hamon, instead of a subtle one, oh well

Congratulations Gabriel! I can't watch it (don't have tv) but I can say that I wish I could. Awesome to here of another fellow forumite showing the tv world what real knives are ;) And that's a fantastic sword and the hamon is beautiful! It's really too bad that you don't have better pictures.

Congratulations from another cable-less member. The sword looks great.

 

Is there any way to get to these Season 4 FiF episodes anywhere?

History.com always keeps them locked.

Man,

Congratulations!

I am starting to think that maybe, just maybe this site should turn into a guild of some type. I know I wouldn't be half the bladesmith I am now without it!

Keep on keepin' on Gabe!

Watched the "cutting deeper" replay of your episode the other night. Congrats on the win! It was fun watching you work.

I sort of know Josh from a blade group on Facebook...seems like quite the interesting character in person...

Hi Gabe

Congrats on winning, I love the show and I have re-watched all 4 seasons several times!

Could you perhaps clear up whether you temper the blades inbetween rounds one and two?

Will mentioned "now that your blades have been tempered" somewhere in season 4, and this is something that has very much bothered me throughout.

 

I know opinions are mixed, I know it's "reality" TV with everything that goes with it, but I've learned a lot, and at the very least been inspired to try new things and improve.
