Review: Sword hanging wall hooks

Postby admin » 17 Feb 2013 21:10

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!

Just admit it - you just placed this review here to show off your swords. :roll:

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

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.
