katas

I have several katas which have been blessed by various lamas. What does one do with them once they are blessed?

I keep my katas on or hanging above my shrine.
I am not sure what the recommended thing is to do with a kata but as long as one handles it in a respectful manner it should be OK.

Thanks for your suggestion. I had been doing that, but I am presently living in an RV and my altar takes up a small corner of my bedroom. Not much space for hanging things. . . Any other suggestions?
:thanks:
