Golfengineering ID: cucput0134
Vintage: Early 1940's
Gender-Dexterity: men's right handed
Lifecycle: used
Shaft type: Reverse single step sheathed steel

Fine condition for this very rare Louisville H&B Model BH offset brass blade with long 5" hosel. Perfect long ferrule and perfect multi-color sheathed shaft with one step mid-way up shaft. Superlative patented contoured solid wooden grip known as the Ray Ottman Pendulum. The clever idea was 'hand control'. The left hand serves as a pivot point with the forefinger and middle finger forming a "V" to guide the pendulum action of the stroke. H&B had numerous grip innovations. The pivot point concept was rekindled about 55 years later with long and belly putters. A unique specimen.
