We have just received a proprietary batch of 70 Pounds of Damascus steel that was custom forged to our specifications. We are currently in the process of squaring up these forged billets on the Bridgeport Mill, prior to the first CNC milling operations.

 

This first ever, Limited Edition of Damascus Putters will be offered in the following configurations of MACHINE Garage and ART putters:

 

3 Each MACHINE M1A Fixer Models

3 Each MACHINE M1A Adjuster Models

8 Each MACHINE M2A Converter Models with Heavy Blade Back (std) or New Beefy Back flanges

 

In addition to the Damascus Heads, we will be offering Damascus Plumber Necks, Damascus Hand Bent Hosels, Damascus Spacers and Damascus Cavity Medallions and a few more surprises!

 

Please Contact me at Choeppner@Doglegright.com for pricing on these very Limited Edition Damascus Customs.

 

Please let me know if I can answer any questions, or work up a quote for one of these beautiful new models.

 

Sincerely,

 

-Chris

Hey Everyone,

 

Thanks for the great comments guys :) The e-mail and PM response has been great so far :)

 

Attached are photos taken today of the first Damascus MACHINE Putter being milled in the Haas CNC Milling Center. This is #1 of 8 from the 1st Run of Damascus M2A Converters.

 

Note that the pattern is not as noticeable as we mill the putter. It comes out when we finish with either acid etch, gunmetal bluing and or hot sauce flaming (or combination of these finishes). However, you can still see the patterns on the stock metal on the face side.

 

I'm going to try and get some more photos that I can post tomorrow as they progress in being milled :)

 

Thanks,

 

-Chris

Hey Guys,

 

I hope everyone is having a great day :) I promised you more In-Progress Pics and here they are :)

 

These are photos of the Damascus Converters, #'s 1-8 in process, after the 2nd CNC machining operation is complete. The heads now have hosel ports milled and other finish dimensioning passes.

 

We aren't milling sight lines or dots, etc. that we normally do on production putters in this op. Any alignment cuts will all be done to order on the Bridgeport mills.

 

Note the in-hand shot showing the one of one pieces of Mosaic forged Damascus. This is a really special piece, as the pattern is really cool the way they fold this one. The patterns will be somewhat normal on the top surfaces and sole, but will show off the Mosaic pattern on the ends of the heel and toe.

 

Due to the costs of the materials and added work on this one, it Does carry an additional charge for this specific piece as we ordered it to be different than the rest :)

 

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask :)

 

Thanks in advance

 

-Chris

Hello Everyone,

 

I hope yall are having a great day :) I've had alot of e-mails asking about the finishes on the Damascus so I wanted to show a couple of examples of some Damascus we finished in the past.

 

The Ball Markers show what the Etched Finish will look like.

 

The tongue insert shows the Rainbow Torch Finish on the Damascus :)

 

Please let me know if yall have any questions :)

Hey Guys,

 

I hope everyone is having a great week :) I wanted to first say, thanks for all the great comments :) I know Dave has loved hearing them :) The e-mail and PM response has been great :)

 

I wanted to share a couple more pics with you :)

 

The first picture is the Custom Damascus we had made for us for the Cavity Logo Medallions and the Spacers :)

 

The second photo shows the heads going thru the third milling operation, which is counterboring the hosel port for the torx screw cap and engraving the MACHINE Logo and the USA on the sole :)

 

I will have more photos of the Damascus by Monday at the latest.

 

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask :)

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Chris

Hey Everyone,

 

I hope everyone has been having a great week :)

 

Here are a few photos of the 1st Run of Limited Edition Damascus MACHINE Putters for 2011, this is M2A Converter #1 of 8, after milling, initial hand finishing, and its first Acid Etch to bring out the Damascus pattern.

 

This head is now ready for customer choices for additional custom milling, such as sightline(s) or sight dot, stamping, grinding etc. It has will then have even more hand finishing to go, another Etch, and final finish choices. But hopefully you can get a better idea of the patterning on this one, and how these parts will look.

 

Hope you enjoy! :) Let us know what you think.

 

More unique custom forged Damascus patterns, back flange, hosel and other components and finishes will follow next week...

 

Thanks :)

 

-Chris
