Thursdays at 9.25pm Channel 070

Over the course of history, skilled craftsmen helped shape the fate of mankind by constructing the most iconic weaponry known to man. Inspired by age-old traditions, Discovery Channel is gathering the best builders to battle it out in a head-to-head competition to re-create the armaments that have changed the course of history in Master of Arms.

 

Centuries ago, the greatest empires leaned on the backs of weapon craftsmen to create the blades, bows and ballistics that would win wars and alter history forever. In this series modern weapons smiths put their technical knowledge and ingenuity to the test giving insight into age-old building techniques — and the traditions, methods and craftsmanship that define them. Each episode sees builders face-off in two historical challenges that call upon era-specific weaponry, from the firearms of the frontier to the blades of the Vikings with USD$10,000 up for grabs for the winner. But these aren’t just quickly fabricated weapons – each tool will be heavily researched and crafted pieces of art.
