Hey,

Ive got an Albion Vinland and I don't use as much as I should, but the grip needs to be cleaned. I was wondering what sort of products I should use to get my oils and such cleaned off the grip.

I apologize if this topic has been posted before, I tried using the search but I'm terrible at them for some reason.

Thanks!

Im surprised no one has answered..

I mean, I realize it was a noob question but still. Its mostly because the grip is naturally dyed so I dont want to harm it in any way.

It's my experience that the most simple method is to use a cloth dampened with warm water. This often does it. If neding a more aggressive cleaning, I use Lexol cleaner. Depending on how the leather is finished, it may change the color a bit.

Use a soft sponge campened with water.
Do not use excesive force, nor too much water.

When dirt is removed, dry with cloth.

Use a good quality leather conditioner: a type that penetrates the leather. Not a type that builds a layer on top. Ask a supplier of saddlery equipment.
Even clear shoe polish might actually work.

Rub leather condtitioner into the leaher and let it soak for a while. Wip of and rub dry with soft cloth.

Basically, you should treat a sword grip the same as you would a fine quality hand stitched leather shoes.

Good luck!
