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.

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!

-Gabriel

Just aired in the U.K. Congrats Gabe. I've been avoiding this thread until the episode aired here.

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...
