    Artifact display T-Arms are an effective tool for exhibiting swords and scabbards. They are usable in a wide variety of applications and are specifically designed to provide maximum structural support and the greatest level of artifact safety, while also being highly customizable and appropriately discreet to keep focus on the object on display.


    The bases are cast acrylic and are available either painted semi-flat black or unpainted and clear. Bases are also available in a variety of sizes for maximum customization, although they all are ½” in thickness. A wider base means additional stability and is highly recommended when a large armature is being used.


    The “arms” of the “T” are made with 1/16” softened metal, while the upright post is made with 1/8” metal that is much harder to bend. The metal display armature is removable from the base so that it can be more easily formed o the desired shape (e.g bending the main post in a vice or cutting it with Lineman’s pliers or a hacksaw). For wall-mounted displays, the armature may also be ordered without the base. Likewise, T-Arms with two sets of arms are also available, and provide additional stability to long/tall swords.
    A helpful instructional video for shaping the armature can be found here.

    There are also 12”H T-Arms available, which are more rigid and are designed to hold larger artifacts with more weight.

    *Note: Avoid putting pressure on soldered joints when bending. Also, when modifying the post, be sure to remove it from the base very carefully to minimize damage risk to the base as that specific junction can be very tight

    Custom Armatures:

    Sometimes a custom sized armature fulfills your needs more effectively than a standard one. You might want a larger or smaller armature, or maybe you need a stronger or more delicate upright. Whatever your needs may be, we can customize or custom build an armature for you.

    Additional Information

    Common tools for armature adjustment include:

    • Needle nose pliers in a variety of sizes (for tight bends in the “arms” of the “T”)
    • Large wire snippers (for trimming the arms to length)
    • Large pliers, such as Linesman's Pliers (for all-purpose bending and cutting uses)
    • A hacksaw (for shortening the central post)
    • Flat black touch-up paint (for the base or armature after modifications to them)
    • Shrink Tube (to pad artwork from the armature if necessary)
    • A heat source, such as a heat gun (for use of Shrink Tube)

    We carry many of these tools, which can be found on our Mount Making Supplies page.
