An Eskit putter, often quite erroneously described in auction catalogues as very similar to the Benny putter from Ben Sayers. This one has no corrugated sole similar to that club's "Gruvsol" (the smooth sole is stamped "Solid Rustless") and the balance of the club is quite different.
The shaft is hickory which, paradoxically, is unusual, I see more with dangawood shafts, and transitions from square at the top to circular lower down the shaft. The black leather grip is original though many of these Eskit putters were produced with no grip whatsoever.
The head has an enclosed dot face and was made for Wallie Tomlinson, the professional at the North Shore club in Skegness in the 1920s and is stamped with his name, in signature, to the reverse. It is also marked with the Gibson star, "Eskit" and "Made in Scotland". The extended hosel is thin and goose-necked all intended to transmit more "feel".
