Esquire Orders 13 Additional Episodes of ‘Knife Fight’ for Summer (Exclusive)

The culinary competition’s second season will be continue in late-July

If you’ve been craving more of Esquire Network’s culinary competition “Knife Fight,” you’re in luck.

The new cable channel for men will extend the show’s second season with an additional 13 episodes set to being airing on Tuesday, July 29 at 10/9c.

This new run of episodes will include all the trash-talking, sweat-inducing madness of the series’s “underground” culinary competition, but promises more crazy ingredients (like Crickets, 1,000 year-old eggs, flying fish, calf liver and eel) and fewer prizes.

The new episodes include contenders from the highest ranks of the culinary industry, including James Beard Award winners, Michelin star owners, “Top Chef” contestants and Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs.”

In TheWrap’s exclusive first look at July 29’s episode, it’s a Northwest versus Midwest fight between Chef Adam Sappington of Portland’s Country Cat and Chef Michael Smith of Michael Smith’s Kansas City Restaurant.

With an entire forequarter of beef as the secret ingredient, Sappington shows off his butcher skills — using a handsaw, by the way — as he chops up this massive chunk of meat and leaves Smith with the leftovers.
