    Since 1998, sword maker and master-at-arms Maestro Paul Macdonald has been making high-quality reproductions of edged weaponry for historical fencers, collectors, museums and theatre companies. Paul is also a historical fencing master and teachse various forms of traditional European swordsmanship and combative Arts.
