    "Khana is legit such a tricky sword to make... or atleast thats what it looks like to me as a non-blacksmith. Found it memorable to watch though"


If you watch Forged in Fire on a regular basis, you surely get in awe of how bladesmiths carve their own badass swords and edged weapons using fire. Well, who can blame you? Such craftsmanship is disarmingly astonishing. But of course, playing with flame is all fun and games - until it wreaks havoc on a massive scale. And one person learned this the hard way. Did you know that a man inspired by the TV show set buildings ablaze in Cohoes, New York? No, this wasn't a Forged in Fire episode. This wasn't a story in one of the books about blacksmiths. This was a real account. The man was John Gomes, a 51-year old fan of History's TV show. Being the ardent viewer that he was, Mr. Gomes tried to forge his own piece of metal over a barrel near his house. The winds, however, weren't in his odds as big gusts of wind sent sparks to nearby apartments.

The sparks eventually created big flares that destroyed three residential buildings and damaged 28 others within the city. Mr. Gomes' apartment was one of the establishments that caught fire. Fortunately, the incident incurred no major injuries. Mr. Gomes was then charged with felony counts of arson and reckless endangerment. He was also arrested the same day but posted bail on the next. According to reports, the cost to repair the damage could reach up to a million dollars. Despite this, Cohoes mayor Shawn Morse assured that investments in the revitalization of the city are underway. So, if there's one thing to learn from this: it's this: Leave fiery stuff to people who actually know them, shall we?

    "Re-watching the first season really made me realized how much light Judge J brought into the show. If you didn't know what happened to J Nielson when he left... The dude got into an accident and the tv world felt his absence. I hope his recovery goes well."
