A+E Networks-owned channel History has set a late August air date for NorthSouth Productions’ forthcoming craftsman series Milwaukee Blacksmith (pictured).

The series will follow blacksmith Kent Knapp and his children as they make their living in the 5,000-year-old craft of blacksmithing.

Behind the power of a 100-year-old screw press and 135-year-old anvil, the series will showcase Knapp and his team of craftsmen as they forge everything from bike frames to bank vaults.

Charlie DeBevoise and Mark Hickman serve as executive producers for NorthSouth Productions alongside History’s Jim Pasquarella.

Milwaukee Blacksmith is scheduled to premiere with back-to-back episodes on August 23 beginning at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
