Weapon Masters is a television show that was premiered on the Discovery Channel on December 31, 2007, and on the Military Channel.[1]

The hosts, Chad Houseknecht and Mike Loades, a weapons historian, choose a different historical weapon each week. While Loades explores its history — often traveling to the country from which it came to interview modern practitioners — Houseknecht capers about, gibbering and gurning, while attempting to improve on it using modern technology (for example, a pneumatic device was added to a blowgun in one episode). At the end of each episode a challenge test of the new version is held.
