    Trust me on this, there's no problem with swinging them around. I've even fought with them (before I knew I wasn't supposed to do that, heh) And they stood up surprisingly well. Especially the Ranger sword, which has got to be the most "functional" wall-hanger I've ever seen.

    But still a wallhanger after all! Look at the above thread which Anduril started about wiggling blades. I'm having that problem with my Ranger sword as well and I didn't even swing it much at all (ofcourse before I knew that is not were these swords are made for) A friend of mine is also dealing with that with his Glamdring sword so I wouldn't recomment swinging, but hey, it's still your sword to do with as you please.

    Just because it's not functional doesn't mean you can't just swing the damn thing around. If yours can't handle that, then you must have defective ones or something. Because, see, they're made of steel, and steel doesn't just decide to BREAK.

    I mean, if you aren't going to swing it, what's the point? Might as well take a picture of the sword, enlarge it, and pin it to your wall instead.

    Very true. If someone made one-piece steal sword then I would be surprised if parts started wiggling around in the hilt. But no sword is made like that. If you look on the BBB site you can see that they are assembled with many parts. After time the parts in the hilt may become loose.
