Master of Arms
Nov 25th, 2018 at 11:31am
 
   For the past few weeks I've been watching Master of Arms on The Discovery Channel.  I don't know if our members outside of the United States can see this on TV but you can probably check it out on Youtube.  It's set up sort of like the cooking show Chopped. 
    It starts with three competitors.  First they are given the task of recreating a historical bladed weapon. They are given usually four hours to complete this task.  This week it was a gunstock war club.  The weapons are put to the test then three judges send one of the competitors home.
    The remaining two are given four days to complete a recreation of a historical firearm.  This week it was the blunderbuss.  Another is eliminated and the remaining competitor is given the title Master of Arms and sent home with ten grand.
    I have minimal skills at woodworking and none at blacksmithing but I still find this show extremely interesting. I highly recommend it if you're able to get it in your country.
