Of course, A. 

So far, I've been able to resist custom irons, but the force is strong...

That's the copper nickel, Ian. They are all very close in size (mini), but the CuNi looks so small because it's next to the aluminum bronze, which is by far the largest in order to make weight.  These are...

Copper with Mokume Gane sight line

Stainless Damascus with Copper sight line

Niobium (can be anodized, so we played with color; I might change colors again at some point)

Brass

Stainless with Mokume Gane insert

Aluminum Bronze

Copper Nickel

Absolutely can!  It's not an at-home thing, though, unless you have anodizing capabilities.  We had a few iterations before I left it in Lump's hands.  I haven't thought about it in awhile, but I think I'd like something else.

Hmmm,... Maybe I should get an electric blue or fire orange head... The color is permanent?

Yes, being anodized, it's permanent, unlike a patina, torched finish, coating, etc.

Ok.  Thinking of a fire orange with varying hues on a a high toe head now.

You were saying nobium is soft feeling?  May need a mild mill if so.

That's a nice call on color.  I think Niobium is more dense than soft, but it's been awhile since it (or any putter) has gotten use.  I'll do a little putting with it and report back.
