Troy Firefighter Competes on History Channel’s Forged in Fire

0 Comments

We love seeing local people succeeding on national television and most recently, a Troy firefighter competed on a History Channel classic.

If you’re not familiar, Forged in Fire is described on their website where “World-class bladesmiths re-create historical edged weapons in a cutthroat competition.” On Reddit, u/threedice described the show as similar to Chopped where after each round, one of the competitors is kicked off the show.

Adam Coonradt has been a member of the Troy Fire Department for four years, according to Spectrum News, and now, he’s trying something new. “There needs to be a lot more people putting things out into the world, not only just making or building things tangible. People, just make content. Write a poem. Write a story. Sew. Make costumes,” says Coonradt. You can see some of his custom pieces through his personal business, Uncle Sam Metalworks.

The Capital Region has a love/hate relationship with the show since the last time it was in the news locally, it was because someone tried to recreate it and burned down a chunk of Cohoes. Thankfully, Coonradt is a professional and ended up taking home the win after his competitor’s weapon broke when tested.
