Special Guest - Bladesmither, Forged in Fire Champion
In 2011, Chris Farrell began Fearghal Blades to present to the world a non-traditional style of knife-making in which he could explore the craft as an artistic and spiritual undertaking. Fearghal Blades are one of a kind works using high quality metals and exotic woods. Implementing his 16 years of experience, as well as bladesmithing techniques that span throughout the ages and many cultures; Christopher's Farrell's take on knife making is unique and diverse. The designs vary from fantasy to historical to modern practical everyday use. They are hand crafted in his forge, which was featured on cracked.com's article: "6 Things Movies Get Wrong About Swords." The article went viral, obtaining over 3 million views. The article caught the attention of the History Channel's competitive bladesmithing show: Forged in Fire. Chris competed on the show in 2015 and won the title of a Forged in Fire Champion. Since Forged in Fire, Chris continues to build the Fearghal name being featured at comic, horror, and sci-fi conventions and events across the country.
Chris will join us on both Saturday and Sunday.
