    I'm beginning to wonder of these casting directors have access to my medical records and surgery schedules.. And are just messing with my head :eek:..The TV show "Forged in Fire" has been a big hit with fans around the world...I was being recruited for season number one... but had to have a shoulder surgically repaired and so I couldn't be on the show...several seasons later they were recruiting again ...and sure enough medical issues kept me from being on the show... Well Fast forward to the wee hours of the morning on Thursday prior to my scheduled surgeries .. I was trying to grab a couple hours of sleep before reporting to the Veteran's Hospital in Little Rock where I was to have two major surgical procedures performed...and this happens....

    Hello Arkansas Knifemaker!

    My name is Suzie Strosin and I'm a Casting Director for History's newest hit show Forged in Fire: Knife or Death. We're searching nationwide for people who know how to use blades and want to test their own ability in a gauntlet-style competition for a chance at winning $20,000.

    We’re inviting anyone to apply for our second season - specifically butchers, chefs, bladesmith or anyone who can comfortably handle knives, blades, or swords. After seeing your facebook page, I definitely wanted to reach out and see if you or anyone you know may be interested in our show? We are considering anyone who knows how to work a blade. If you would like to apply, please let me know!

    For more general information on the show, please visit www.history.com/shows/forged-in-fire-knife-or-death.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    My motto is:

    "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any at all." :)

    But hey...at least you had successful surgery and can get back going soon!

    I am sorry, KK. And, actually, I can relate.

    In the words of one frustrated gent, "It ain't the years, it's the mileage"!

    Go ahead and apply. It might be months before they actually start filming

    Kid,
    All you can do is recuperate, get back to your knife making and be glad you aren't one of these guys :)

    kid, I'm watching knife or death right now. no matter how good your knives are, and I know they are good, you will need to heal up and get some strength back. That is a challenge! I sure would like to see you on there though.
