Byron Morgan Putters / Re: Byron Morgan Damascus B17

- Warning - The following post comes from a place of extreme ignorance and extreme logic, as I have no clue about the Damascus steel creation process.

Weld
verb
1. Join together (metal pieces or parts) by heating the surfaces to the point of melting using a blowtorch, electric arc, or other means, and uniting them by pressing, hammering, etc.
2. Cause to combine and form a harmonious or effective whole.

Since Damascus is a crap-ton (that may, or may not, be a scientific method of measurement) of different layers of steel, that have been joined together to form a single piece; wouldn't that make all damascus steel "welded"?

Logically, yes... I think?

Let me explain my original post. From what I have read the original Damascus steel formula and technique was lost long ago. In 1981 Duke University claims to have stumbled onto the way they were made by accident. I don't know if that is definitive or not. There is a way called "welded Damascus Steel" which I asked about in my first post but never received an answer.

1. I don't need a Damascus or solid gold putter from Byron to appreciate his skill. I have shown my DH-89 to several pros I know and all thought it was an amazing putter which I agree. I saw Byron's work and immediately recognized his talent.
2. Having a custom made Byron Morgan putter IS having something different regardless of the metal used.
3. I cannot verify the collectability with golf in decline. Also, I don't collect anything golf related I don't or cannot use.
4. No problem.

So my original question is unanswered and I have been playing golf for 58 years. I have picked up a little knowledge over those years.

I just posted a comment trying to get more discussions since this is basically the only golf forum I post anymore and I would like to see it a little more active.  ;D

Is this "welded Damascus"? Yes, it is beautiful but why? I don't have wall space for putters. I cannot see paying that much money for something designed to get the ball in the hole on a putting green. I feel the same about Tiger's backup Cameron selling for 44K too. But that is just me. Someone else might think it is a super deal. A sword made out of Damascus would make a lot more sense since it's famous properties are aimed at making it super hard. American stainless steel work just great for me and I can get two or three great custom made putters for the same price. JMHO

Another thing to add...just because it's listed at $2300 doesn't necessarily mean it will sell at or near that number...

The DH-89 Byron made for me is a putter I appreciate and think the quality is amazing and beautiful. The next one will be the same or better for me. You are 100% correct that I am not for this extreme market but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the beauty. For me function trumps beauty and I feel mine have both in the putters I own. That's the balance I have been looking for and have found here.  :)
