In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton talks with Brandon Williams. Williams won $10,000 on the History Channel’s competition show “Forged in Fire” last November in which he competed against three other contestants in creating a slasher blade.

Williams lives in Blackfoot and is the owner of 4B Outdoors and co-owner of Grip-N-Pull Bullet Pullers. He has always had a passion for forging knives and has seen an increase in business since appearing on the show.
