Weapons and armor have played a starring role in pop culture, from movies to video games to comics to TV shows. In each episode of MAN AT ARMS, a team of expert craftsmen skillfully reproduce famed weapons from scratch. Using both the tools that would have been available at the time such weapons were originally created as well as present-day state-of-the-art technologies, they will create historical, but modern works of martial art. Each masterwork is then tested by experts for its strength and real-world functionality. Whether it slices, shoots, smashes, stabs, blocks, or disarms, viewers will get a first-hand look at what kind of force each marvelous masterpiece can unleash. Hosted by famed Hollywood action star Danny Trejo.
