My Favourite 28g so far...
« on: March 11, 2011, 08:34:31 AM »
Here is another 28g putter we have made for a customer in the US. He stipulated that he didnt want any stamping, so everything on the putter was hand engraved. It has a 24ct gold sight line, scroll work on the top line, face and sole. It also has a bullet sole. This one is my favourite 28g that we have made so far:

That's one of the best looking 8802's I've seen. Definitely my favorite Ingles. The engraved name looks pretty cool, too. What did the head weight come out to? Is the engraving on this one fairly expensive? Have you done any 28g's with ferrules yet?

Love to see what you guys are coming out with!

That's really not bad for that much engraving. Would love to see the version with a ferrule when you do it!

Speaking of engraving, I recently sent a putter to an engraver that I know for her to do some large scroll engraving on it, in all liklehood I ill probably keep the putter as my gamer (though I really have enough of these already!), or have it to demonstrate what engraving patterns are possible. She isnt the usual engraver that I use as she specialises in a different style of engraving but is an extremely talented artist and engraver.

We are considering have her engrave a putter with some kind of golf based picture (any suggestions are always welcome) but in any case, I thought I would share the first process in terms of hand engraving, in this case it was roughly sketching the placement to send me a picture to check if I was happy with it. The process after this is to carefully mark out the design, this is done by dabbing the metal with something along the lines of plastercine, something that will leave a slight residue on the metal. From her you careful mark on the outline with a scribe, which provides the guide of where to make the cuts. Once all this is done (it is surprisingly time consuming and i've found by experience, you need to make sure the layout it absolutely perfect before you start making any cuts.) you can then start the engraving part. You cut the main outlines and parts, in this case the scrolls, and then you layer it up with shading to give it more depth.

The picture below shows Katia's rough sketch on the bottom of the putter in engineering ink to show where the scrolls will form. She has said she will also send over a picture of the top of the putter today which I can post later.

Engraving isnt for all and we aim to fundamentally produce gamers for people but I think it is always good to champion old world skill.

(The wooden handled tool in the picture is the graver which is whats help in the palm of your hand to 'push' the metal part of the graver along the cut lines with is what engraves the metal.)

Brando5015, that can be done. Within the next month im getting our new forging blanks allowing us to make heel toe weighted putters like the anser  :D

Wow.  Now that is craftsmanship.  That is definitely a dying art as I don't know that you could find someone to do that over here in the states.  I definitely like the hand etching more than most stamping I have seen done over here especially by that Donald guy.

Inresting.  I may need to a little more research to see if I can find someone to do a little work like that here in the states.  I don't think it would take of very much weight so it would just be like art added onto a putter.  So I essentially need to find someone engraving knives and go from there.  I think that would be cool to add to the sole of one of my putters.

...and the putter is finished and back with me. The pictures dont do it justice, really striking. Am still deciding on what finish to put on, at the moment im thinking copper but all input appreciated.

Thanks Mark.

Sure, our second forging mould has been made and the first blanks should be with us very shortly. As you can see it is a very rough shape which will allow us to make a wide variety of heel toe weighted putters, I have included some photos of the putters that could be made from the new blank.

Besides the obvious....the 1st thing I thought when I saw that 8802 was shotgun. Unbelievable engraving on that on, especially on the sole!

We now have the new forgings in so we can offer a variety of heel toe weighted putters for half the cost of the Bespoke one offs.

If anyone is interested then shoot me a PM or email.

Hope everyone had the chance to enjoy the Masters!

Spiker, this one is for you. We finally got round to making a 28g with a ferrule that we talked about all that time ago. It came out really well and as an added bonus re-distributed some weight around to push the sweetspot more central.

JTI,
Is the engraved putter available? Also, what is the cost to duplicate the one with the gold sight line?

Regards,

Ryan

Really beautiful work there.... must start saving now !! The engraving work is out of this world and the ferrule is very elegant.

I am at a loss for words. This falls into the "put your hands in your pockets and admire the show" realm for me. My grandfather was a watchmaker, jeweler, and engraver. His work is like this and it is a joy to behold your work. Thank you so much for sharing!

That engraving work is stunning... you and your team make some absolutely beautiful putters.

The ferrules are sweet as well. I don't think I've ever seen something like that on another putter. Don't let SC see them!
