Hello,

I wanted to ask the forum what grip color was probably most used for a Sempach Family type sword in History.

In accordance with this question what grip color would be most historically correct for a Albion Sempach Sword.

Thank you for yours answers Happy.

Hector,
The Albion Sempach swords only come in two grip colours - brown and black. Real Sempach swords, however, don't have grips and perhaps some of them remain in museums today.

What? Albion will produce their "Sempach" model with any of their standard grip colors, or for an additional charge, a custom color.

I am not aware about any specific colours being favored for the Sempach type swords.

Various shades of brown and black would probably have been the most common.
Other colours are possible as well.

Brown looks very nice if I dare say so myself. Big Grin

Stop posting the picture of your MAGNIFICENT sempach in every thread I read! I already look at it multiple times a day, and have bookmarked it to my browser (for reasons of sword porn and such). Your photography skills should be employed by Albion because ever since I laid eyes on it I have been dreaming about it Big Grin.

Now stop teasing me Mr.Smith ^^.
