Full video coverage of the 2021 Championship round.
Last Blade Standing started in May, 2021. The first champion was crowned July 17th, 2021. Each year, Last Blade Standing selects bladesmiths and knifemakers from a large field of makers. Parameters are given, and the competitors have 6 weeks to make a blade to that specification. Blades are then put through a series of extreme tests. After the competition, blades are auctioned, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting a voted upon charity.
If you are interested in competing in Season 2 (aiming for February 2022), send us a brief email using the contact form above. Please be sure to include any social media handles, so we can review.
