I watched the program, I think Faud is a class act and the work he did on the program looked first rate. I was terribly disappointed when his Yari broke on the absolute first test attempt. Not only disappointed for Faud, but I wanted to see what sort of damage a Yari would do on other test media. Looking at the damage the other contestant's Yari did to the pig carcass, you know, those pole arms were fearsome weapons, not be be sneered at. Firearms replaced swords, axes, pole arms, spears, not because of lethality, but because of distance. When I see pigs being cut in half with two handed swords, axes, pole arms, I am really impressed with the power of those things. The episode that ended with the Roman Sica sword, both of the contestants Sica swords cut off the head of the ballistic dummy. I had no idea that the Sica sword had such cutting power.
