Product ID: I007W

Details 

A good left handed niblick for the lady player. The swing weight is C0 and the length is 36.25” (92cm).

This was obviously a popular club for the original owner as the face pattern is quite worn in parts, please refer to the images.

Kroyden Co (USA)  35 degree 4 iron with patented metal ferrule c.1915
Product ID: I020E

Details 

An interesting unusual and rare iron made by Kroydon Co, New Jersey, USA having a metal ornamental ferrule fitted to the top of the shaft to help protect the grip from becoming worn at this point. The owner of the company, Mr Arthur A. Kraeuter was granted a patent for this invention on 13th January 1925 and as the images show the ferrule was stamped accordingly. The swing weight is a light B8 so this iron will suit a gentleman player who has a slow swing and prefers light clubs or would be suitable for a lady player.

Kroydon Co were founded c.1918 and started producing their first clubs in 1919 and they continued production until the 1930’s. Their iron heads were heat treated to harden the metal and they advertised that this helped to reduce the heads from becoming scratched/gouged and the treatment also helped create extra ball distance. They specialized in producing uniform matched sets so this 4 iron will have been part of an M08 series set of irons supplied to W. Rapp (William C. Rapp) who was the professional at Colonie, West Albany, New York during 1917-28.
