Yes I have a few of them. Nice quality and one of the softest milled putters I have ever rolled. I had the G2 in the bag for a bit a few years ago.

Can you buy these anywhere else? I found one at my local shop, couldn't tell if it was used or not. I tried to go on their website but it just led me to an inactive domain site. Really enjoyed the one I had my hands on, just can't find anything or anywhere to buy a new one.

I believe he is out of business again. You might find some NOS but used market is probably your only option. You can always refinish if not in good shape. Putters don’t generally wear out; unless you hit the same spot thousands of times.

I saw something about him going out of business back in 2016, then him launching a line of custom, handmade putters back in 2018 with a commercial for them posted last year on YouTube. The local pro shop I go to has some in store and says they have a rep that gives them brand new so I’m not sure what to think.

Hmmm, I just saw someone who was selling brand new one, but don't remember where. If I come across it again, I'll let you know.

So I found a listed email (kengiannini@hotmail.com) and a phone number (817-304-4717) that you can contact him at. I sent him an email asking what he offers and he said to call him and we can talk about doing custom work. Seems to like doing it the old fashioned way, his website doesn’t work but he is for sure still making putters. I guess my local shop just orders a batch of customs from him to move.

Keep us up to date on what you find out.   Interesting in hearing what he is offering and basic price ranges.

The putter I bought from my local shop was listed at $450 CAD (I’ll let you do the math lol). It’s a great putter if I’m being honest, just a real good kept secret. I’d give the number I listed a call or fire him an email. The only thing about this putter is the grip, pretty tough and there back is stitched which takes some getting used to (but looks really nice IMO, so it’s worth it)

Does anyone have one of these besides me?  I received one as a gift several years ago and I really like it....

I have an original G1 that I got from the rep at the AT&T somewhere around 2014.  Ive putted with it maybe 10 times.  Looking to sell this one tmills@pmz.com

So...I'm the former owner of Kenny Giannini Putters LLC.  My name is Tim Mooney and if you got a putter at the AT&T, you got it from me.  I don't stay in touch with Kenny...thank God.  Being the sole owner of the company, dealing with Kenny and a couple of my investors, put me in the hospital.  I hear now he is advertising 'hand made' custom putters...I will tell you that 'hand made' is a stretch to say the least.  A company near Carlsbad, CA was our CNC milling company.  Kenny would draw something on a piece of paper or a napkin and leave it up to our milling company to produce it.  He does have a knack for looking at a putter and making adjustments as far as weight distribution... and the 'performance' slot in the bottom of the putters we used to produce is no joke.  It provides a larger sweet spot than most putters.  But...custom?  hand made?  Those are two tricks to drive the price up...we got $300 retail for the G1-G7...the putters were definitely worth the retail price then, IMO.  But adding or subtracting a couple of grams and hand-stamping TOUR or PROTOTYPE on the back of a putter, that greatly resembles many other putters on the market, makes NOT a custom nor handmade putter.  I never used those words in our marketing efforts.  They were simply, IMO, REALLY good putters.

Good day to all.
 
Recently I managed to collect 2 putters:-
- Cleveland Classic KG 10 Milled
- Legacy 1
 
I really liked the Legacy 1 Putter and yet to try out the KG 10.
 
From my observation, I believe the Black Oxide finishing of the 2 putters might be different and I would like to seek advice here on how to upkeep and prevent them from further rusting or deteorating after each play or during storage.
 
By the way, I am from Singapore and our climate is high humidity all year round, even when kept indoors in the best way we can. We can't be switching on the air-conditioning all year round.
 
Hope to get help soon or my putters will be full of rust soon! 🙂

I am assuming these are carbon steel; which is prone to rusting.   The basics are keep the putter dry and coat with silicone oil or gun oil to slow down the rusting process and protect the finish.

My local shop carrys them brand new, they have blade and mallet style with various different shaped grips and retail for 350$ Canadian from my personal experience they are the smoothest putters I've tried and dad and brother both switch to a Giannini from their Scottys

Am I crazy or are Kenny and his former owner creating new accounts just to post here about each other, lol.  "Kenny sucks" (review from person with one post). "Kenny's putters are the best I've ever seen/heard/looked at/thought about" (review from person with one post). 

I nominate this to the hall of fame thread, lol.

I used to golf with Ken. I thought he gave up the putter biz a few years ago.
