$20,000 Putter
« on: August 28, 2014, 08:59:12 AM »
Just stumbled upon this.. Kronos Golf.  US company.

This is the Hinotori Hand Engraved Putter :

The Hinotori putter is a one of a kind hand-engraved putter.

The sole of the putter shows the Japanese 火の鳥 (Hinotori) which literally translates into English as "bird of fire", better known as a "phoenix." The design was inspired by Phillip's time living in Uji City in Kyoto, Japan where he often visited Byodo-in, the famous temple on the back of the Japanese ten yen coin. On the top of the temple sits two statues of phoenix birds.

Kronos Golf's mark is a phoenix that is symbolic of Kronos Golf's core mission. Here at Kronos Golf, we labor to grow golf to be more like the phoenix: reborn anew from the ashes of the old.

We wish to breath new life into this old game we all love so deeply. We look within ourselves to find inspiration for ways to keep this game fresh, fun, and something worth admiring.

$20,000... group buy?  Ooops, one of a kind.... ;D

Why do that to the sole?  You know that putter won't get gamed so you should do that intricate design on the face...

These guys were on Shark Tank last night.  They gave up 30% of the company for $150,000.  Almost all of their business is done in Japan.  They said their cheapest putter is $500 (thought it was less when I checked their site) at $120 cost of goods.
