‘Forged in Fire’ Champion

Doug Butts celebrated with friends and family at Shack 33 in Linden on Wednesday as he watched himself being named History Channel’s “Forged in Fire” champion and win $10,000. As part of the competition, Butts had to forge a pair of karambits and, later, a cane sword.

More details of Butts’ experiences will be published the Demopolis Times at a later date.
