Last Blade Standing was born on the internet by a large and close-knit group of bladesmiths. Now in its third season, Last Blade Standing is publicized live via YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook, and local television media. Season Two had over 300,000 live viewers, and we have more than 10 million views of #lastbladestanding on our social media.
Each season features an invitational competition of 32 competitors in a bracket-style challenge. They come from across the United States, all competing for a single goal; to become Last Blade Standing Champion. Each season has featured competitors that have been champions, finalists, and competitors on History's Forged in Fire. We showcase the skills and talents of some of the best bladesmiths in the country, not just those on television.
Each season we challenge the smiths to build weapons using a variety of techniques. From recycled steel to canister Damascus, these smiths meet the challenge, and submit their blades to be tested in absolutely brutal ways.
Once the blades are submitted, they are subjected to a battery of 5 tests, all streamed live on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok. The tests vary, but all aspects of the blade are tested; from chopping logs, to piercing steel ammo cans, the blades that survive truly are the toughest.
After the competition, all blades are auctioned for charity. We have donated to two veterans' charities in the past, and the charity of choice is voted on by the competitors. All auction proceeds are donated.
We love our sponsors, and continually support and promote them through the course of the season. They are the lifeblood of our competition, and provide the means to award the winner and keep the show running. For information about sponsorship, please email email@example.com.
