Forged in Fire premiere: See an exclusive clip
For the uninitiated (we do pity you), Forged in Fire is a spiritual prequel to Top Chef.

“There’s a kill test,” says host Wil Willis. “There’s always a kill test, and those are fun.”

True to Willis’ word, the second season premiere (which airs Tuesday) features a kill test for the warhammers made by the contestants during the course of the hour.
