Programs showcasing the ancient art of weaponry construction have attracted large audiences in recent years. Discovery gets into the act with this competition series that features top weapons smiths building armaments that changed the course of history. Empires centuries ago relied on craftsmen to create the blades, bows, and bullets that would win wars and shape mankind. Here, master smiths test their technical knowledge and creativity in historical challenges that call upon era-specific weaponry, from the firearms of the frontier to the blades of the Vikings. A judges panel scores each build, and each episode one smith earns the $10,000 first prize.
