George Forrest of Elie, Scotland, produced this iron with a solid knob on the toe. According to a review published in the 1895 issue of Golf, the solid knob "counter-balances the weight of the socket, and enables the player to get away a straight ball." Call this the first hosel-and-toe weighted iron!
This particular example is not marked on the head but the shaft is stamped "G Forrester, Elie & Earlsferry." The head has its original dark patina. Because this club is so rare, it s easier to accept the lightly pitted condition of this club.
