Our well educated and highly trained staff directs the company. Our full time, in-house staff includes experts on historical weapons, a research and design team as well as Creative Director Dave DiPietro (formerly with Paramount Studios) and Robin Chaudhuri (formerly with Michigan State University Historical Museum in Arms & Armour). Par/time consultants include: Simon Atherton, Prop Master (Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan, Mask of Zorro, Kingdom of Heaven & Gladiator), Joss Skottowe, prop armorer (Die Another Day, Sahara, Quantum of Solace) and Augusto Grassi, prop master (Rome). And we wouldn’t be who we are today without giving proper thanks to our founder Hank Reinhardt, a nationally acclaimed expert on edged weapons. He passed away recently and he will be dearly missed.
