今度のはBobby Grace KBI-SCOTTDALE Limited Edition １９９４ Ｍｎ Ｂｒ ３１/5０
先日のBobby Grace ボビーグレース KBI ＭnＢr 限定300本と並べて比べてみましたが、トップブレードの厚みが若干Limited Editionの方があり、ネックのクランク部分の研磨？型？が違う感じがします。また、フェースミーリングの粗さがLimited Editionの方が細かくなっています。（左がLimited Edition）
This rare and unusual KBI-SCOTTDALE LTD.RUN of only 50 each metal each year were given only to the employees and great vendors of NGK Berylco and in Reading,PA and Athens,TN.and were never sold to the public.
The KBI-SCOTTDALE Limited Edition were made in 1994,5,&6.Each year we would run a numbered run of the first of 50 of each of the three metals. They would have "NGK Berylco (The Beryllium foundries name),on the "TOE" of the face, as well as BGGD(Bobby Grace Golf Design)on the heel of the face.
These were all sequentially numbered in the cavity.(Such as 12/50 1995). the reason
for this was because of my relationship with the foundry, and the uniqueness of tha
KBI project, we knew these were bound to be great collectors pieces in the future.
We went the extra mile on these putters.
We would have them sand cast at the old KBI foundry and then we would hand grind each one,cut the "Floating Face"slot,hand mill the face after engraving each cavity and face.We even reproduced the old 9 1/2"first step shaft with Apollo,but we felt even better.We chose Apollo because ther had the technology of making a shaft whitout a seam,with "Spun metal".
These putters were all very expensive to manufacture.Bobby Grace Golf Design was the very first to make a perfect old style Scottsdale out of Beryllium Nickel for PGA TOUR players back in 1993.Davis Love Ⅲ,Donnie Hammond,Brian Claar,Payne Stewart,Greg Norman,were just some of the guy i made these putters for back then.
