Wyoming’s prodigy bladesmith, Jack Rellstab, will face off against Forged in Fire champion, Brandon Williams, hailing from Blackfoot, ID to compete for knife-making glory. Taking place just off the square during the Saturday JH Farmer’s Market, both competitors will be given knife specs and then use forges, anvils, and grinders set up for the competition. The final winner will be decided by audience voting on Instagram. To vote, follow @mtn_man_toy_shop, @4b_outdoors, and @rellstabknives.

To top it all off, New West KnifeWorks will provide on-site knife sharpening, offering the first knife sharpened FREE for all who bring their kitchen knives, pocket knives, and hunting knives for a shaving-sharp tune-up. Head to New West KnifeWorks & MTN Man Toy Shop between 10 am and 4:30 pm on Saturday to watch the competition and partake in the Knife Day celebration.
