Rochester Man Wins History Channel Competition
I wrote about Jeff Wagenaar and his exciting news about being part of the TV series "Forged in Fire" last week. If you missed his viewing party or Tuesday's episode, spoiler alert - He wins!! He's officially the Forged in Fire Champion, and Rochester is so proud.
Who is Jeff? He is a dad from Rochester that has spent the past 10 years "playing." He creates these unique weapons in his garage. He decided to tryout for the show "Forged in Fire", and the end result played in his favor. He flew out to New York to tape the show last summer. He had to keep the results a secret for almost a year! Could you imagine?
What is "Forged in Fire?" A competition series that tests some of the best in the field as they attempt to re-create some of history's most iconic edged weapons. According to the Forged in Fire website, the competitors "use sweat, fire, force of will, and a well-equipped forge to turn raw material into authentic, fully functional implements of war."
