Hello!

I'm considering ordering a 12w medium blue warrior tier disciple with the dark brown leather wrap but before I do, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this specific wrap. Whenever I search for it online I find a variety of colors ranging from extremely light brown all the way up to very dark brown (examples below). Also, the Saberforge website does not have a picture of this wrap in the color examples section for some reason. My goal is to have a very dark brown wrap to match the darker blue of the blade. Ideally, it would match the wrap on the heretic page on Saberforge.com (https://saberforge.com/products/heretic?variant=40118512074). So if anyone has any experience or suggestions as to how to get the color I want that would be great! Thanks! :)

I have the dark brown wrap on my Gladius. Here's a pic for comparison. Hope it helps you out. I agree that the colors differ from pic to pic.

Have you thought about buying the wrap from a local fabric shop? That way you can definitely make sure you're getting the color you want. I'm thinking about ordering a Sentinel without the wrap so I can do the same thing.

If it's not as dark as you want, you can always take shoe polish to it. Of course, if it's too dark, then that won't work.

The problem is that leather varies in color. They can probably get a pretty consistent "regular" brown, though even that will vary slightly, but the dark brown may have even more variation. They probably have a color range that qualifies as "dark," so that's what they use.

get some dark brown leather dye off amazon for a couple of bucks.

do thin coats and wipe off the excess until you get the color you want.
