Review: Sword hanging wall hooks

I recently noticed these at the Knight Shop and got some:

I am very happy with the result. They are quite adequate to take the weight of a real sword and fairly inconspicuous, as well as being dead easy to put up (if you have a drill and rawl plugs). Only one slight niggle - one of the packs had differently sized screws in it for some reason. They come in black, nickle or bronze, though I seem to have bought the last of their bronze ones for now.

Cheers. I'm going to find some more spaces for more, to de-clutter my corners.

It looks awesome.

But that could quite possibly have more to do with the display pieces.

Well done :D

I've just started decorating the house (newly moved in) with sword based porn. I might have a look at these hooks, as the ones i'm using right now are dubious in quality!

Come on, if I was doing that, why would I only show 6 of them? :)

What is the second one from the top? It's quite lovely.

I'd say 1821 Artillery Pattern, due to the straight blade, but it's probably one of the custom ones he's picked up along the way.

Thanks - yep, 1821 Artillery officer's sword by Pillin (good maker), probably 1860's. The nickel plating is almost perfect still.

Hush, temptress! My bank account has been scourged enough this month.
