Weapon Masters

Image 1 / 10

Technology and history collide in ‘Weapon Masters’, where we witness the power of pivotal world-changing weapons. But did the ancient craftsman get it right? Could we make a better weapon today with modern materials, science and techniques? Or did ancient craftsmen's seemingly simple solutions make the most sense, withstanding the test of time? Our Weapons Master Mike Loades, has spent a lifetime studying and wielding these ancient weapons. Our Master Craftsman, Chad, is offbeat, alternative-minded, and can make anything - but is he really a match for history's master craftsmen? In the final showdown, when the modern weapon is pitted against the traditionally built example, high speed cameras and time-slice photography capture the moment of truth. Will the new sword cleave a bullet clean in two, can the new crossbow shoot farther…or will the traditional weapon reign supreme?
