Plot Synopsis

IRON & FIRE is a one-hour reality series that follows traditional knife and gunsmith Daniel Casey as he crafts custom knives and guns while being a family man. Born and raised in the foothills of the Ozarks, Daniel grew up obsessed with becoming a blacksmith. Daniel built his first forge and began making knives at the age of 12. At age 14, he apprenticed with world-renowned blacksmith Hershel House learning the skills required to become a professional blacksmith. Daniel lives on top of a mountain in Romance, Arkansas, with his wife Chelsey, his four-year-old son Wesley, and a variety of hound dogs, cats and chickens. The series opens with Daniel breathing new life into a 200-year old classic as he crafts a custom "Poor Boy" rifle. But the rifle's of no use against the tiny invaders who've moved into Daniel's dad's home, so he brings in the big guns to remove a colony of honeybees to a hive of their own. Then at a family dinner, the buzz is all about Daniel's news of a new addition to the Casey clan. Then, Daniel begins to craft a replica of the very first Bowie knife ever made, he has a big pair of boots to fill. He salvages steel and wood from days gone by to hammer out his own version of the 200-year old antique. He takes time out from the painstaking task to repair a Civil War-era rifle -- and blow off some steam with friends shooting targets with black powder flintlocks.
On Monday, May 16, 2016 from 10-11pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of IRON & FIRE, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (10pm), "Hog Spear," the Casey boys are invited on a traditional hog hunt, and Daniel forges the ultimate spear for the occasion. Meanwhile, Daniel gets some quality time with his three-year-old son, Wesley, and Bob and the boys head to the firing range to create what Bob likes to call "Flint Lock Art." Then, in the season ender (10:30pm), "New Additions," after restoring and building countless guns and knives for his customers, master blacksmith Daniel Casey decides that it's time to build a rifle for a very special client: his son Wesley. Although Wesley won't be old enough to shoot it for a few years, Daniel wants it to be waiting for him when he is ready, so he sets out to build a miniature sized poor boy rifle.
