Kronos Golf Rare Series Cornet Putters
The KRONOS RARE Series represents the marriage of precision with the finest materials. Whether it's a one-off putter built to thrill or a putter made from a limited supply of high-end materials, the RARE series will leave you in awe as you gaze upon the pinnacle of sophisticated beauty.
The Cornet putter, like its Touch model siblings, is a blade that places an importance on solid feel. After all, a blade putter should have incredible feedback. From there though, the unique qualities of the Cornet begin to make their presence known. The Cornet is a limited edition putter made from an enamoring brass alloy -- a first for a Kronos putter -- serial number one through seventy-two. Only seventy-two pieces were made this year.
The Rare Series putters use a variety of rare metals and unique finishes, and amongst them lives the Cornet with its incredibly soft brass alloy. While carbon steel has proven itself a soft metal suitable for use in fine putters, the results from standardized hardness tests for our brass alloy put in on another page entirely... quite literally. Such is the softness of our Cornet's brass alloy.
As beautiful as the rich color of the brass is when it begins its life, brass will naturally patina and change color over time as it matures. In order to help preserve some of the original color, we have added a protective clear coating over the entire club except for the face. This gap in coating allows for both a pure hitting surface against the original, buttery, soft brass as well as a space in which the putter can patina naturally and record its unabridged tale in the world.
The manner in which brass changes color and begins to patina over time is something we really appreciate about brass. It creates a very personal and unique color that is reflective of the environment in which it was used. A hotter humid climate will create a different color than a dry cold climate. The protective clear coat will inhibit the patina process, but the color will inevitably change over time as the clear coat wears off*. In 10 years time, we hope to collect some beautiful photos from our customers documenting the unique patinas and the environments in which they were used.
