Marto’s sword hangers are an attractive means of wall-mounting a sword. While the polished brass mountings hold the sword securely, they allow the sword to be removed and replaced easily. The MO16000 is for mounting Samurai-style swords, either vertically or at an angle, while the MO15000 and MO15002 are used with Medieval styles. The base of the loop is approximately 2″ from the wall. Brass is malleable; I’ve bent one of these into a round shape to hold a spear.
