I ordered a Vigil with a campaign worn, light brown grip. I'm still a little on the fence with the color choice given the fact that good pictures of the Vigil with a campaign worn grip seem to be hard to find on the internet. So, if anyone has a pic or two that they wouldn't mind sharing that'll help me with the decision to either stay with my original choice or to change colors? Thanks in advance.

Albion's own pictures on their site are of the "campaign worn light brown"

I saw those, they're just not the greatest photos.

I've owned an Albion sword with that color grip. Those pictures show it pretty well.

That's what I was hoping to hear. Thank you!

I'm not a fan of the standard 'spiral' grip they use on the Vigil. You might consider spending a bit more for the Chevalier style grip. You can choose which underwrap and ovewrap color you like. Here's mine before it shipped from KoH:

That's definitely an idea I've been tossing around in my head. Thanks!

The campaign worn color is going to vary a bit. More so than the more solid darker colors they offer. When I ordered my Senlac in this grip a few years back I asked it be on the lighter side like the Bayeux pics and was told there is no way to match a specific tone they may have in those pics, maybe close but its def going to vary. Good luck. BTW I think their campaign worn is my favorite color they offer. Really looks good on earlier swords IMO

Here is a Sovereign that I bought a long time ago with a campaign grip.
