Slighter Tune Up
« on: February 17, 2014, 07:24:35 AM »
Just got these in progress pics from Tom.

I really like this second kitada but wanted a sightline... So I thought since I gotta send it in, to have her totally redone in a theme that is fun and in line with another of my interests. Tom did such a great job with my Purity putter, I thought he'd be best for what I wanted to do with my kitada.

Won't let the cat out of the bag yet so here are the in progress pics of a very naked kitada.... Stark contrast you will agree.

Kitada in its original state with my correction tape sightline.... It works ok.... :-)

Try emailing them to yourself and then resaving them.

I am not familiar with Slighter's work. Is it common for him to erase a manufacturer logo and stamp his over the top? Just curious.

I requested Tom to do that but to leave the circle K at the top of the face toe to still asknowledge Kitada who makes a nice rolling putter just not the best finish.  I may have another kitada on the way in but this time made out of SM490A which is supposed to have a great feel in between sus303 and carbon steel.

Tom is a great craftsman and will do just about anything you request to your putter because its YOURS and its YOUR choice, he did some work for me a couple or three years back on a Nardi and the quality of his work more than matched Bettinardi quality, I can't think of higher praise TBH.

Regards
T

BTW. The last time I saw correction tape on a computer screen I had a blonde secretary ::)

Sole Milling is done.  Now it's going for refinish and paint fill which should complete it.

Whenever I read your posts Lion I always learn something but you've got to take some of the credit for the creativity here mate.

Your vision and Tom's workmanship = pure art

Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Wow - that is certainly racey mate  8)

Very intricate paintwork there - you really made Tom work for it.

Well done.
